What's in the

Baby Box?

The Baby Box. Inside out.

Scotland's Baby Box gives you some of the essentials for the first few months of a new baby's life.

It includes a selection of clothes from newborn up to the age of 6 months, as well as everyday must-haves, like a bath towel, a travel changing mat, muslin cloth squares and a bib. Not forgetting a digital ear thermometer for taking your baby's temperature.

But there’s fun stuff too. Every Baby Box comes with a number of books that you and your wee one can read together.
