There are a number of great subscription boxes available, containing food, makeup and everything in between. Beebies Baby Store have teamed up with Fi Star-Stone, author & parenting expert, and the Kicks Count charity to launch the Beebies Baby Club Pregnancy Subscription Box and I’ve received one of the very first monthly boxes to review. How exciting!
Orders are taken at the Beebies Baby Club store, and are sent out once a month (mine was dispatched on the 10th February and arrived a few days later). My Beebies Baby Club Pregnancy Subscription box arrived in one piece, although I was a little surprised to see that the box wasn’t taped up and could be easily opened. If the courier had fancied a free tube of nipple cream, I wouldn’t have noticed anything was missing.
The order form on the website takes into account a variety of parenting choices, asking how you plan to feed your baby, if you know the gender, etc., which allows the box to be tailored to each individual customer. This is definitely worthwhile – for example, as I plan on breastfeeding, a box full of bottles wouldn’t be as appreciated as other products.
I was quite surprised when I opened the box to see how much was included, considering the cost of the box is £20. Alongside a number of information cards about the brand and my current stage of pregnancy, inside was a 15% off voucher for Lamb & Bears new children’s clothing store. A pack of two face masks will be much enjoyed prior to labour coupled with a long soak in the bath to make the most of my own company whilst I can!
I’m really excited to try the Nod Pod baby blanket when baby arrives. Marketed as “the baby blanket with legs”, I think it might need to join us for the car journey home from the hospital as it can be used in a car seat. A tube of Metanium Everyday Nappy Cream has been included in the Beebies Baby Store Pregnancy Subscription box too – I’m pretty sure I used this when O was a baby, and it did well to prevent nappy rash so that will definitely come in handy.
The Beebies Baby Club Pregnancy Subscription Box also includes a Womb to World CD which is to be played to baby after birth, to calm and prompt sleep. I guess it’s similar to the White Noise app’s that I was recommended when O was a baby. And last but not least, a lovely story book that is about welcoming a new baby into a family. I’m sure that O will love to read it.
Disclosure: I was sent the Beebies Baby Club Pregnancy Subscription Box for the purposes of this review, however all words and opinions are my own.
