New Baby Box Registration

New Baby Box Registration

All new-born babies in Scotland will be offered a Baby Box.

The baby box scheme will be rolled out across Scotland in August, the Scottish Government has confirmed. All babies born on 15 August or after will receive a box with the essentials to help them get the best start in life. Pregnant mothers can register to receive the box at their midwife appointment after 15 June.

Inspired by Finnish baby boxes, the Scottish version includes around 40 items and the box doubles as a cot.

The boxes contain about 40 different items including a play mat, a changing mat, a digital thermometer, a fleece jacket, several baby grows, a hooded bath towel, a reusable nappy and liners, a baby book and an organic sponge.

The roll-out follows pilot projects in Orkney and Clackmannanshire which started on 1 January.  See full article at BBC.
