what benefits should i be/can i claim now i have had my little man?

I have just sent off my form for child benefits (20 a week), but what else should i be looking into? I dont think i qualify for much because both me and my OH work full time (obviously im on maternity at the minute).

I know the government give you something (250 is it??) for a childs trust fund but how do i apply for it?

I know i probably sound really stupid asking but ive never been told by midwife etc and have no idea where to look for information?!

Any help greatly appreciated!! Confused

You may qualify for working tax credits or whatever its called not sure but i think to claim you have to be earning between you both less than 55,000 per annum (i tmay be wrong). The Child Trust Fund you should receive a voucher within a month of applying for/receiving the Child Benefit, I believe.
