I received an email from the Scottish Baby Box company last Monday saying my baby box would be delivered in the next week and to expect information from Parcelforce but I haven't heard anything yet. Has anyone else received one recently and was it delayed?

I got the same email on a Monday and my box was delivered the following Thursday. Parcel force text me the day before I think

God, that's fantastic! Wow.
I've never heard of these (but I'm not in Scotland so that could explain it)

Can I check how your baby box was arranged? When looking online it says midwife will discuss/sign form between 20 and 24 weeks, it wasn't mentioned at my 20 week scan apt and don't see a midwife until 28 weeks. I do have a tel apt at 25 weeks so can mention it then but just wondered what was usual smile

@Worrier85 hi, I had a phone call app at 25 weeks where my midwife said she would post stuff out to me including the baby box form smile

@Worrier85 you are meant to get the form at your 20 or 24 week appointment, my midwife only gave me it a few weeks ago at my 32 week appointment as shed forgotten, I got an email last night saying it would be with me next week so plenty of time for you to get the form, send it off and receive it before baby arrives.

Can I ask how far along you are?
I sent away form around 5 weeks ago now. Received notification they had received it but nothing since. I’m 31 weeks on Thursday

I'm 32 weeks. Spoke to them today and they said the email had accidentally been sent out early so should arrive this week or next.
