Hej! When you are an expectant or new parent, it’s always nice to get advice and tips from friends who have already been through the same things.
One of those friends shared a tip with me about ‘Baby boxes’ that are available for parents-to-be. Swedish ‘Baby boxes’ are literally boxes full of different baby items and samples and are offered free to residents of Sweden, not to be confused with the Finnish baby box that babies can sleep in. You only need to register online and then the Babyboxes are available to pick up at various locations around the city.
During my pregnancy, I made sure to order the babyboxes from babybox.se and another one I found on Libero.se.
I ordered 4 baby boxes total and each came with different items for baby AND mom.
Here’s a quick look inside each box.
Babyboxes from babybox.se:
Babyproffsens Babybox can be picked up at any location of Babyproffsen
Lloyd’s Apotek Babybox can be picked up at any Lloyd’s Apotek location
Apoteksgruppens Babybox can be picked up at any Apoteksgruppens location
Just give them your person number when you pick it up.
The Libero Startbox can be ordered here and picked up at any ICA Maxi location.
When I went to pick up my Libero startbox, they told me to put my name on a waitlist
and come back when they had more stock. But just before I left the store, they told me they had found a startbox for me, so I didn’t need to come back 😉
It only takes a few minutes to sign up and you should receive a confirmation email afterwards that you can also show when you pick up the babybox.
You may not use everything in the babyboxes, but it is nice to have little samples and coupons. You can see what you like when your baby is around and the boxes are FREE afterall!
Hope this post was helpful, especially for the English speaking Parents-to-be in Sweden. Enjoy your babyboxes and the special time before your little bundle of joy arrives 🙂
