Also included in my box was a recipe card for wholesome and healthy prenatal food!
Smarty Pants Prenatal Multi + Omega 3s + Vitamin D – sample (2 gummies), Value $0.28 (buy a bottle of 120 for $16.83 on Amazon)
I think this is a little bonus/extra since it’s just a sample and not listed on the info card. Either way, I’m happy to try these! I use traditional prenatals, but the gummies are tasty! I’m really curious about if these may make a difference early on in pregnancy, particularly for women who tend to get sick from taking their prenatals in the first trimester.
Eye Mask & Ear Plugs – Value $5.99?
I chuckled when I saw this in the box. They included these sleep aids to help the “off-duty” parent trying to catch a nap! Thoughtful, I suppose, but on the off chance I *am* able to catch a nap I usually don’t need these to help me pass right out! Haha.
Yorba Natural Softening Foot & Heel Balm – 3.5 oz, Value $14.95
This foot and heel balm is rich in fatty acids and is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory as well as super-moisturizing. Fortunately, I don’t tend to have many issues with my feet being dry/cracked/swollen, etc during pregnancy, so this isn’t the best product fit for me, but I’m sure it’s helpful for many women out there – pregnant or not!
What to Expect the First Year (3rd Edition) – Value $10.21 on Amazon (retail price $16.95)
I’m happy to see this included in a pregnancy box and surprised I’ve never seen it in any other pregnancy/baby subscriptions. I haven’t personally read it so I can’t vouch completely for all the information (I didn’t own a copy until now) but I know “What to Expect…” books are classics and very practical. I also know that it can be helpful to have one central place to check first for information/what’s normal/etc instead of having to wade through the overwhelming expanse of baby advice on the internet, especially for first-time parents.
I’ve enjoyed skimming through this – since I’m about to have my second, I’m not sure I’ll be needing this myself though. However, it makes a great gift so I think I’ll save it for my cousin who’s due with her first this winter!
Playtex Baby VentAire Tummy Comfort 6 oz bottle 3 pack – Value $7.19
A super practical item! Thanks to pregnancy/baby boxes, I didn’t really have to buy bottles for my first, and I was able to try a bunch of different ones too.
These work well, though my only complaint is that they’re a little tricky because the bottom screws off and can leak if you don’t have the vent piece in right after washing or if it’s screwed on crooked (which is easy to do in the middle of the night and sleep deprived), etc.
Little World Peas 100% Cotton Bodysuit – 0/3 months, Value $16.99
Baby clothes are another favorite of mine to get in boxes. This one is 100% organic cotton!
This bodysuit is really soft and made of a nice, thick cotton fabric. It also has little mittens on the ends of the sleeves for newborns. This is going to get a lot of use – it’s a comfy basic that is eco-friendly too!
Grandma’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – 2 cookie pack, Value $1.99? (buy 5 bags for $9.99)
This is another item that isn’t listed on the card, so I think it’s another bonus/treat.
Oatmeal raisin isn’t my first pick for a cookie flavor, so I thought at first maybe it was a lactation cookie or something, but it’s not. Still wasn’t bad, though! My son liked them too.
Verdict: I thought this box had a nice curation of useful products for the third trimester/early baby days. I think all of the products are great quality (except maybe the sleeping mask) and helpful for new parents and babies. The value of my items, not including the bonus vitamins and cookies, add up to $57.58, which is slightly higher than the cost of the box and shipping. I’m a little bummed the value isn’t better, frankly. I wish there were at least one more full-sized item; maybe a full-size bottle of prenatal/postnatal vitamins instead of just a sample? All that being said, the item choices were practical and great gift ideas, too.
