If you are pregnant or if your child is born, you can request free baby boxes or maternity boxes from a number of providers. In these boxes are several things such as bottles, magazines, teat, diapers, ankle, cream and so on. It differs a bit with which provider you order the baby box. Do you also want free and fun stuff? Then read here where you have the cutest free baby boxes can order. But before you let go: also read the disadvantages of free baby boxes.
Why are there free baby boxes?
There is of course a reason why there are free baby boxes and pregnancy boxes available. Because let's face it: the sun goes up for nothing.
First, many companies see you as a potential customer. They would like to introduce you to their products and therefore put them in the box. Secondly, you will find many advertising leaflets in the box. Thirdly, you often have to pick up the box in the store. Now that you're in the store, you might also want to buy some other things right away. And finally: if you request a free baby box, you must leave your contact details. The company can therefore easily send you offers in the future.
The joyful box of WE
One of the best-known free baby boxes is WIJ's joyful box. This box is completely free and can be picked up in a Prénatal in your area. There are some nice products such as diapers, socks and a Philips Avent bottle. In addition, you receive free the WIJ magazine and another special of the magazine. During your pregnancy you can get nice updates via the mail. Did you give birth? Pass it on and you'll receive a cute blue or pink cap with the name of your baby sent home.

The parents of Nu Pregnancy Box can be picked up in the nearest Etos.

Free baby box: The Pink Box
Do you live in Belgium? Then you can sign up for De Roze Doos. When you sign up you will receive samples of well-known products that you can try. Think of test packages from famous baby brands such as Pampers and Nutricia.
The Albert Heijn does not offer free baby boxes, but of course they offer something. If you go to the Albert Heijn and show your birth announcement, you can get 2 rolls of biscuit and a pack of mice (of course in the right color). First check with your local AH if they offer this promotion, not every branch does.
Unfortunately, I have to disappoint you: the Hema has no baby box on offer. Of course you can buy a lot of baby stuff at the Hema for a reasonably reasonable price. The Hema is also a good place to purchase items for the baby set-out list.
Free baby box Zwitsal, starter box
Finally, the baby's box from Zwitsal also called the starter box. This box contains lots of handy, fine and fun Swiss stuff especially for your baby. Think of hair lotion, bath oil, wipes lotion, soft cream, shampoo, zinc ointment, soap-free wash cream and a wooden brush and comb. Unfortunately, this super fine box is not free. You can buy it for a considerable discount at bol.com and some other providers.
Super convenient! All Zwitsal stuff at once in the house!
Foundation baby stuff
Free baby boxes are fun.What is fun and feels very good is to hand over baby stuff to families who have less money to spend. You can contact Stichting Babyspullen for this. Of all the things they receive, they also make free baby boxes especially for families with less financial space. If you want to donate stuff or request a free baby box, then look here.
Keep this in mind with free baby boxes
It all sounds super fun, those free baby boxes, but there is a small snag. As previously indicated, you do not get everything just for nothing. When you sign up for free baby boxes you have to enter a number of details. Such as your name, address, e-mail address, calculated date and your own date of birth. Then you have to check the conditions for agreement. But what do you actually sign for?
When I signed up for the Happy Box and the box from Ouders van Nu, I suddenly received mail from baby shops in the area. For a long time I asked myself how those people were coming to my address for god's sake. Now I know: through the free baby boxes!
If you agree with the terms, you agree to share your information with other companies that want you as a customer. This can sometimes be a proper laundry list. The companies keep an eye on everything and know exactly when you are calculated and in which phase of life you are. They can then respond to this conveniently by sending you advertising by mail or e-mail. Think of fun outings for your children.
