Baby box uptake

Section:  Be  | Tags: , ,

FIGURES have revealed that 1916 baby boxes have been given out in this region since they were introduced in April 2017.

The uptake in Dumfries and Galloway has been welcomed by South Scotland MSP Emma Harper. She said: “96 per cent of expectant parents in Scotland are now requesting a Baby Box – and more than 80,000 have been delivered. That’s a huge vote of confidence in the Baby Box.”

Meanwhile, a new design for the box has been revealed along with extra contents that will encourage families to become more environmentally friendly, with parents-to-be receiving a voucher for a reusable cloth nappy, and liners. In addition, it contains a selection of clothes, a bath towel, a travel changing mat, muslin cloth squares, a bib, a digital thermometer, and books.
