Vent- the mail is my enemy

Erg, the barrage of newborn mail has started to arrive.  Shutterfly just offered me a number of free newborn announcements.  I hate this.

    Everyone Welcome.

  • I just got my first subscription to Parents magazine today plus some other catalog for baby furniture- sucks, I hate it.
  • Loading the player...
  • Along with all the emails and mail, people from the Cord Blood Registry KEEP calling me! I regret ever signing up for more info from them. I have told them numerous times to stop calling. On the bright side, Shutterfly had sent me a $20 gift card for birth announcements, so I used it to make some photo gifts instead with Brayden's pictures.

    I found this link with some ways to unsubscribe:


  • CBR also was harassing me I finally emailed the woman back and told her I lost the baby so don't contact me anymore- she replied that she felt awful and then went on with some other nonsense about getting in touch in the future ...
  • I'm so sorry.  When we were in the hospital, our "bereaved parents" pack of information included a card that we could send our address and unsubscribe from these things, but we still got formula samples, cord registry, etc. 

    EDD 1/8/10 - our sweet sunshine DD born 12/30/09
    EDD 2/15/14 - Stillbirth at 21 wks 10/02/13
    EDD 8/12/15 - MMC 1/12/15
    EDD 12/24/15

  • ((hugs)).  I'm so sorry.  I get them too - and I unsubscribe to the emails and still get them.  I have no idea how.  And yesterday we got a shipment of free formula to the house.  CBR has also contacted me (more like stalked me) and I sent them an email telling them to knock it off because my babies died.  No one has said a word since.  It is so hard to try to heal when companies are shoving baby stuff in our faces. 
  • @dsere87 Thank you for the link.  I think I have done all those things.  But it sounds like some things get through no matter what.

  • **siggy warning**

    Ugh.  Been there.  My DH got the mail after Ava passed away and he would throw away that stuff before I saw it.  It really helped.  I'm sorry you're struggling.  Hang in there, hun.

  • ((hugs))) we get it hun. I'm a year out and it has finally slowed down. If you had a registry (we had one at toys r us) you will get crap for "First Christmas!" and baby's 1st birthday. Even my parents got stuff for Grandbaby. We've called a few times and its seemed to have stopped.

  • I know it sucks.  The mail kept coming almost everyday with baby things in it, it would make me so angry.  After a while I started contacting every company personally to unsubscribe, but it didn't always work.  And then comes all the 1st birthday crap, such a slap in the face.

  • I've been able to toss the cord banking, daycare ads and other junk mail quite easily. The Parents magazines I just keep in the plastic and put in the nursery with our other stuff, but yesterday I came home to 2 cans of Enfamil formula and that made me sad.

  • Yeah, the cans of formula were the worst.  I hate to throw them away because I know how expensive formula is and that I could give them away, but that would involve keeping them and seeing them until I could give them away.  Ugh.  After the first box of samples sat around, MH just started throwing them away as soon as they arrived.
