The following press release comes from the Scottish Government:
All babies in Scotland due from tomorrow will be gifted a box full of essential items aimed at tackling inequality and promoting health.
The boxes are a strong signal of the Scottish Government’s determination that every child, regardless of their circumstances should get the best start in life.
Each Baby Box contains a large number of items which are not only practical but designed to help tackle inequality and improve health. The box itself also doubles up as a safe sleep space, awarded British Safety standard accreditation as a crib for domestic use.
All babies due on or after 15 August will be eligible for a Baby Box.
