Scotland’s Baby Box

Over the last year every parent in Scotland can send away for a Baby Box from the Scottish Government all you have to do is fill in a small form with your address and due date at your 20 – 24 week midwife appointment then she sends it away. Ours arrived at 34 weeks it was rather exciting and like Christmas morning.

Filled with a few important things to get you started the box also comes with a mattress so you can use it was a bed for your baby then a toybox or whatever you decide.

Hi I just want to start by telling you i am Natasha i am wife to MrS my life and sole and mum to, well i never know how to answer this but here it goes there's Andrew 13, Alyssa 10 from a previous relationship and Emilia almost 4. Then there was my hero and brightest star Charlie who past away in april 2015 just before his 7th birthday after a year long battle with leukaemia brought on by fanconi anemia. MrS and myself have always said we would love two baby's so we are half way there! Hopefully this will be a place to share the journey too baby and my experience as a mum and the things i love.
