Amazon Baby Welcome Box Review + Free Box Offer – May 2016
The process to get the free box is a little complicated, so we’ve written this post, breaking it down into steps for you.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Amazon Baby Welcome Box
The Cost: Free, following these steps (or you can just buy it for $35)
The Products: “The Baby Registry Welcome Box contains product samples for Mom and baby from our most trusted partners.”
Ships to: Everywhere!
The box came with this little info card. I actually didn’t know you can scan items with your phone to add it to your registry – now you can have all the fun of walking around the store scanning things but for your online registry!
Johnson’s Baby Bubble Bath – 3 oz, value: $0.60
Babyganics Moisturizing Daily Lotion – .5 oz, value: $0.25
Aquaphor Healing Ointment – .14 oz, value: $0.07
I know I was obsessively collecting samples of products like this when pregnant. I liked having samples to try over having full-sized products because I didn’t know what things I would like, my son would like, or if he would have sensitive skin or something. I know I love the brand Babyganics, and this Aquafor ointment works well, too. I haven’t tried the Johnson’s Bubble Bath yet, but maybe I will when my son is a little older to have fun with a bubble bath.
Babyganics Hand & Face Wipes – 10 ct, value: $1.60
As I said, I love the Babyganics brand, and I have actually bought these wipes. I like them! They’re great to grab for post-strawberry eating adventures (sticky hands in general) and dirt and, obviously, diapers.
Philips Avent Day Disposable Breast Pads – 1 pair, value: $.15
I used this brand and Lanisoh brand breast pads when I needed them, and they did work well. I had no problems using them overnight, either. More than 1 pair would be nice, though. 1 pair doesn’t go very far!
KIND Bars, Peanut Butter & Strawberry – value: $1.17
I’ve loved KIND bars for a couple years now! I love all the flavors. I love that they’re gluten free and have lots of nuts and fruits and are quite good for you, while still being flavorful. They also travel really well – they won’t get squished in your bag.
New Chapter Perfect Prenatal Multi-Vitamin – 15 tablets, value: $3
I love this brand – I used them when I was pregnant, though I don’t think it was this specific kind. I love that they are made with whole foods and are organic. They’re also supposed to be really gently on your stomach, perfect for nausea and morning sickness (which, believe me, I am an expert in – I struggled with that really terribly while pregnant). You’re even supposed to be able to take them on an empty stomach because it’s just made with food.
I’m so glad they tossed this card in the box! I have never heard of this app but I’m in love with it. It’s an app that helps give you ideas and activities for you to help your little one’s brain develop (specifically for ages 0-5)! And they’re such simple things. Some of my favorites they show as examples on their site: letting your child be the one to turn the lights on and off when you go in and out of the house to promote understanding of cause and effect, coming up with stories about people on the crosswalk when stopped at a light (where is the woman in the hat going? What do you think she will do? How does that make her feel?) to promote understanding others’ perspectives and coming up with characters/stories, and having them help you with your grocery list when you go shopping.
Burt’s Bees Renewal Day Lotion – foil sample
This moisturizer is designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and increase firmness, too. It also has SPF. I wish this were a larger sample but I tried it on my hand and it felt pretty nice!
Philips AVENT Natural Polypropylene 4 oz Bottle – value: $7.24
Love that they included a bottle in this box! Thanks to subscription boxes, I had a few different kinds of bottles on hand to try and I could see which kinds he liked. I think they’re great items to include in baby boxes. I really like this one – the 4 oz size is perfect for newborns and I have tons of friends who swear by AVENT bottles.
MAM Pacifier – value: $5.99
Pacifiers are another great thing to have in baby boxes because they’re another item that babies have different preferences for different designs and styles. MAM is a very good brand and I know many babies who love this kind.
Seventh Generation Free & Clear Diapers – value: $0.50
I used some Seventh Generation newborn diapers with my son and I liked them. I especially like how they’re made with good ingredients, sustainably sources, and great for sensitive skin.
Verdict: I’m happy with this Amazon Baby Registry Welcome box! I think they included quite a few great products to have on hand and to try, and I’m thrilled to have discovered the Vroom app. I think the contents and samples cover a nice variety of needs and categories, too. The value comes out to about $21. Not great if you’re buying it for $35, but very nice if you go through the steps to get it for free! Like I said in my review, I loved getting all the samples and such that I could because I knew I’d want to try different products and try different things before committing to full-size purchases of anything.
