BRILLIANT BABY BOXES: 30th December 2020
This is great to see: More than 40,000 Baby Boxes delivered in Scotland this year.
Baby boxes are such a valuable help to new parents - I wish they’d been about when my boys were born.
Latest figures indicate that around 93 per cent of those eligible are taking up the opportunity to receive a Baby Box, which contains essential items including clothes for newborns up to the age of six months, a digital thermometer and a bath towel as well as a number of other items.
Supporting new parents this year especially has been vital. The Baby Box, which ensures that every family with a newborn has access to essential items, is part of our commitment to giving every child the best start in life.
