1350 BABY BOXES DELIVERED IN AYRSHIRE AND ARRAN IN FIRST SIX MONTHS

Latest figures from the Scottish Government have revealed that the transformative Baby Box policy has already benefited 1350 newborns across Ayrshire and Arran since they were introduced last year – and over 22,000 across Scotland.

The Baby Box is a key part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to making Scotland the very best place in the world to grow up – and contains important items for parents and babies alike, such as baby clothes, a digital ear thermometer, a bath towel, a changing mat, and books.

The box itself also doubles as a bed for a newborn, containing a mattress, mattress protector and fitted sheet – providing a safe and warm place for babies to sleep.

Commenting, SNP MSP for Cunninghame South, Ruth Maguire, said:

“It is excellent to see so many families across Ayrshire and Arran benefitting from the Baby Box.

The Boxes are a really positive Scottish Government initiative providing parents with many of the essentials they need to care for their child.

From thermometers to towels, changing mats to clothes – the boxes are a fantastic way of giving children in Cunninghame South the very best start in life.

That 1350 boxes have already been provided to parents across Ayrshire and Arran, part of a total of over 22,000 across Scotland, shows how popular they are proving with parents in every corner of the country – and given how beneficial they are to parents and newborns, long may that continue.”
