Burt’s Bees Baby 100% Organic Cotton Burp Cloth – Value $3.70 (buy a pack of 5 for $18.51)
First things first: I’m 7 months pregnant and a total newbie mom. I’ve done my fair share of research, but I’m overall pretty clueless as to what I will need (vs. what’s just a nice-to-have) in preparing for my baby boy. That’s a huge part of why a welcome box that provides essentials and product samples was so appealing to me. And starting off with this burp cloth, one of the things I knew I’d eventually need to pick up, was a terrific surprise. I love how soft it is. Plus, organic is a plus.
Munchkin Latch Miracle Nursing Pads (2) – Value $0.33 (buy a pack of 60 for $9.99)
These will be great for a one-time try, but it would be nice to receive more than 2 — especially since a pack of 60 is only $9.99. Still, excited to see how these adhesive pads work for me throughout the nursing journey. They’re surprisingly thin which will be terrific for concealing.
Pampers Wipes + Diaper Sample Pack – Value $1.00?
This little case came with a single newborn diaper and pack of 6 wipes. The velcro pouch might come in handy for tossing into a bag during outings, and I like that I get to try two popular products from a big name like Pampers. The wipes have a gentle, almost cotton-y smell, but the label also states that they are perfume free, so I assume the scent to be natural.
SwaddleDesigns Cotton Muslin Swaddle Blanket, Black Hedgehog – Value $12.99
What an adorable print! The material of this swaddle blanket was stretchy, breathable, and soft allowing for easy swaddling. It also feels surprisingly durable for how thin it is. This was definitely the most substantial item in the welcome box, and I can’t wait to test it during sleep time. It would also make for some super cute photos as a backdrop considering its generous size (46′ x 46′) or act as a tummy time mat in a pinch.
Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers, Size 1 (2) – Value $0.51 (buy a pack of 35 for $8.99)
I’m not sure what type of diaper we’ll prefer once my baby arrives, so it’s great to be able to try out different styles! I like that Huggies labels the front and back of the diaper — I have a feeling that this will come in extra handy as my husband and I slowly begin our descent into the delirium of middle-of-the-night changes. These diapers are pretty identical to the Pampers variety in texture/softness. However, they do appear to come up a bit higher and a be a smidge wider for a size 1.
Huggies Natural Care Unscented Baby Wipes Soft Pack (56 count) – Value $1.97 (buy 8 packs for $15.76)
As much as I appreciate samples to feel out my options and make decisions around personal preferences, full-size products are so. so. great. This substantial pack of 56 immediately made its way onto my changing table. I love that these are made with aloe and vitamin E for baby’s sensitive skin, and the large pack allows for dispensing one wipe at a time.
Babyganics Ultra Absorbent Diapers, Size 1 (2) – Value $0.87 (buy a pack of 40 for $17.49)
Yay, more diapers! I love that these are extra absorbent and free of toxins, latex, or fragrances. Like the other 2 diaper samples, these have a wetness strip indicator to signal when your baby needs a change. They do feel a bit softer and just… more natural (because they are) than the other samples too. Made with plant-based ingredients, they’re super eco-friendly which is something that try to be conscious of. If you’ve tried diapers from Babygantics, Huggies, and Pampers, I’d be curious to know which your favorite is in the comments!
Aquaphor Healing Ointment, 0.03 oz. – Value $0.07 (buy a 3 oz. tube for $6.69)
I’ve heard good things about Aquaphor for diaper rash treatment and general baby skincare. Happy to add this to my stash of samples. I vaguely remember using Aquaphor on my first tattoo, so I know that it’s been a trusted brand in gentle, sensitive skincare for years. The product itself is a clear, very thick, and unscented gel-like ointment. I intend to use it as a prophylactic against diaper rash, but it has multiple purposes including treatment for irritated skin on the body, drool rash, and minor cuts.
bloom BABY Sensitive Skin Unscented Hypoallergenic Baby Wipes) (1) – Value $0.06 (buy an 80-count for $4.99)
It’s cool that this box offered such a variety of wipes. This natural, vitamin-enriched version runs a bit more expensive per wipe than the Huggies 56 count pack (about $1 more for the same amount), but it’s nice to test out different styles. The wipes are large, thick, and make for durability. From bloom BABY’s product description:
“The wipes contain 98 percent natural ingredients and its EcoFiber wipe material is ultra-soft, non-brasive and sensitive for rash and eczema prone skin.”
Philips AVENT Natural Polypropylene 4 oz. Bottle – Value $5.92 (buy a 4-pack for $23.70)
I was hoping that there would be a bottle in this box! I had zero prior to receiving it. The 4 oz. size is pretty perfect for newborns, and I’m looking forward to trying out a trusted brand like AVENT. The BPA free polypropylene material seems to be easy to care for too. Do you have a go-to bottle favorite?
Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion, For Delicate Skin, Fragrance Free, 1 oz. – Value $0.42 (buy a 18 oz. bottle for $7.50)
This lotion was actually recommended in my recent newborn care class. It also has excellent reviews on Amazon, so it’s nice to know that it’s so depended on by many! It’s thick and moisturizing without feeling greasy on the skin, and I love that there’s no funny scent.
Baby Dove Tip to Toe Wash Rich Moisture, 1.8 oz. (2) – Value $1.41 (buy a 20 oz. bottle for $7.82)
The clean scent of this rich moisture body wash is really nice. It’s free of parabens, is hypoallergenic, tear-free, PH neutral, and is tested by pediatricians. It left a light and pleasant scent on my hand after I tested it.
Verdict: I was really pleased with this Amazon Baby Registry Welcome box! The full sized products and samples cover a nice variety of needs and categories like diaper changing, bathing, and nap time. And it’s incredibly convenient to receive multiple samples before committing to full-size purchases — especially if you’re pretty in the dark, like me. The total value of this box came to $29.25. Not the greatest deal if you purchase this box for $35 but a good one you if you receive it for free.
