Babies arrive into this world with nothing and require a lot. NZ charity organisation BabyStart are making sure you’ve got everything your baby needs with its thoughtfully appointed BabyStart box. Better still when you purchase, an identical box is gifted to a baby in real need to sleep in.
The ever-awesome Finns sent a baby box to global pin-up baby Prince George following his birth and baby boxes have been hot ever since. Now, NZ is on to it with our own kiwi-sourced and inspired version.
So what’s in the box? Everything you’ll need for the first few months, except a bottle of bourbon for dad. Bedding, clothing, nappies, bathing consumables it’s all there, even a smoke alarm for the nursery. At $750 they’re not cheap, and no doubt you could make up similar contents yourself for less, but there’s no feel good factor in that and you wouldn’t get the choice box to shift your baby around. Just don’t accidentally stack it in the garage. But seriously, from a dad who’s done the newborn thing twice, there’s nothing in there you won’t use – it’s all handy kit. Many of us end up sleeping on cardboard at one point in our lives, might as well be first thing.
