The earliest you can apply is 29 weeks, the latest 3 months after the date of birth. If you cannot print off that form, pop down to your local jobcentre and ask for form SF100.

ive read that any benefit counts - even child benefit and tax credits - so if you are working you can apply after the baby is born at the same time as child benefit. not sure about if you are already receiving child benefit though - may be able to get it earlier
my bf showed me this on some random forum somewhere (he has it saved if anyone wants me to get him to find it) and it seems that not a lot of people know that and just think that because they are working they wont get it.

Hi, Hope you are blooming well and baby kicking nicely.
you can not apply for the grant untill your 11 weeks away otherwise you just have to apply again, the job centre have a simple form for you to fill in and the midwife have to sign it aswell. mine took about 2 weeks to come through so with any luck yours will be just as quick.
