The Baby Box Co Review

As my due date inches closer, I'm buying more and more for the baby and getting prepared for her arrival. We have all of the main essentials like the pack and play, car seat, clothes, bottles, etc.  Pretty soon the furniture for her room will arrive and I'll be setting up the nursery.  I've been buying books for her for months now, and her bookshelf is rapidly filling up.  It's important to not forget the little items that babies need like swaddle blankets, bibs, crib blankets, etc.  Thankfully, The Baby Box Company has all of the smaller items covered for you.

The Baby Box's mission is to give expectant mothers throughout the world the very best start for their baby. The founders enable them to reduce stress and feel confident that they are well prepared for this new and exciting chapter in their life.  For every box that is purchased, a portion of the proceeds goes towards helping a new mother who is struggling to make ends meet.  The Baby Box Company offers four differently priced boxes filled with baby essentials.  Each box has similar items including swaddle blankets, healthkits, bibs, burp cloths, socks, pacifiers, etc.  Depending on what box you choose, you may receive multiple quantities of those items. Whatever box you select comes with a baby mattress with waterproof cover and 100% cotton sheet.  A baby box makes a perfect baby shower gift for the mom-to-be.  The recipient will love so many essential and helpful items all together in one box.

I received the Classic Box for review.  When the box showed up at my doorstep, I was excited to open it and see everything that was inside.

That's one huge box! I know you're wondering what's inside, so I won't keep you in suspense any longer. Open up the owl box and you'll find the following items:

1 baby mattress
1 lovey
2 BPA-free pacifiers
1 onesie
1 muslin swaddle blanket
1 healthcare kit
1 pair of socks
1 terry cloth bib 
1 natural washcloth
1 pair of mittens
1 newborn cap 
1 natural burp cloth

Not a bad haul, right? The owl lovey is just perfect for that soft and cuddly friend a baby needs.  I loved the adorable star printed swaddle blanket.  This will certainly come in handy for swaddling in the first few weeks of baby's life.  It is also very convenient to have as I didn't have a swaddle blanket before.  I was very excited about the healthcare kit. The thermometer and all of the other contents of the healthcare kit are essential for baby's health.

I already have a few pacifiers but it's always smart to have extra on hand, so I liked that another two were included.  The blue bib was slightly disappointing to me because it was a plain and average item.  A lot of the other items featured a cute print or design and this was ordinary.  I felt that a better bib could have been included and it didn't fit in well with everything else sent.   

All of the other items included will certainly come in handy for baby like the newborn cap, the mittens, and the burp cloth.  I'm excited at the fact that this kit has helped me to check off some remaining items that I needed to buy.  It's always a good feeling to be well prepared for whatever new challenge or role you've accepted in life, whether it's a new job, new baby, etc.  

Treat the mom-to-be in your life to a box from the Baby Box Co, she'll absolutely love it and it'll make her feel one step closer to having everything ready for baby.
