We want to welcome every baby born in Scotland by giving them their own Baby Box.
The Baby Box will help families prepare for the arrival of their baby and provide a safe and comfortable place for them to sleep. The box itself acts like a Moses basket as it comes complete with a mattress and bedding that fits perfectly.
New babies need a surprising amount of stuff! Scotland’s Baby Box is packed full of clothes, bedding and lots of other useful things to help give your baby the best possible start in life.
How you get your baby box
The baby box is free and your midwife will help you register for it.
During your 20 to 24 week antenatal appointment your midwife will:
- explain the baby box to you and ask if you would like one
- fill in a baby box registration card with you
- arrange delivery
You don’t need to do anything else. You’ll get the baby box between weeks 32 to 36 of pregnancy.
