As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I am expecting my second baby girl this summer. Many of my friends are pregnant with their first babies and the baby shower invites have been steadily rolling in. As a second time mom, I feel like less of a newbie this time and feel like I have a better knowledge of what baby products are necessary and what will sit around unused. I know many first time moms feel completely overwhelmed by the process of preparing for baby and registering for gifts for their baby shower, I was in that position just last year. The Baby Box Company is the perfect gift for expecting parents, packaging up many of the newborn must haves into a gift box that doubles as a baby bassinet. I was lucky enough to receive a Baby Box of my own to review as I prepare for baby # 2.
The Baby Box Co is modeled off boxes given by the state in Finland to expectant mothers that serves as a starter kit for their new baby. It is believed that these baby boxes helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
This box is filled with all kinds of goodies including: swaddles, cloth diaper, wipes, pacifiers, wipes, baby wash, teether, mitten, socks, bibs, free samples, coupons, and so much more. Although the concept of using the box itself as a bassinet might seem a bit odd at first, the mattress is great quality and protected by a waterproof cover and 100% cotton sheet. I can see the convenience factor of having a space to allow baby to sleep that is more portable than lugging around a full size bassinet or pack n’ play. The box itself would be a great place to store all your precious memories after baby has outgrown the space.
There are 5 options for The Baby Box Co which run $69-$199, depending on the contents and they also sell many of the items included in the boxes individually on their website. Plus they offer free shipping on all boxes within the USA.
The Baby Box Co is running #mybabybox contest until April 17, 2015. If you already have a Baby Box at home be sure to enter to win a pretty awesome prize package valued at $800+. For more details about the contest and how to enter visit the contest page here.
