Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the number of baby products on the market? I did when I was pregnant with Saoirse, and since she’s been born, it’s still a massive task trying to decide what brands are best for her and what products work the best. This is where Mamas box, a monthly subscription service is perfect, its full of specific products for you and your baby.
Each box is different, and every month the products change, we received a five-month box, and it was perfect for the milestones that Saoirse is reaching. I would have loved one of these boxes through my pregnancy too as there are products like bra extenders, body lotions and everything you need as a pregnant or new time mum but don’t know.
You can also send a box as a gift to someone, this idea is perfect for people who want to buy a great gift for a birthday, the birth of a baby or just because you want to give them a gift but have no idea what to buy them or what they will need. That’s the beauty of Mammas Box; they do it all for you.
So what do you get in a Mammas Box?
4-5 full size products and essentials.
Included in our box was:
Mammas Mug- Perfect for that hot cup of tea during my ‘me time.’
2018 Diary- I love this, its full of tips and suggestions on making your year super happy
Silicon Bib- Saoirse loves this bib, it’s so easy to clean when shes covered it in food and is soft around her neck so it doesn’t rub her skin
Milestone Cards- I’m a big lover of these milestone cards and always do a monthly photo, now we have food ones too, stay tuned for even more updates!
Annabel Karmel Cookbook- I had never heard of Annabel Karmel until I went to see the mums at fat camp and they all raved about her (I was an Ellas Kitchen lover only). Now I have my own recipe book, I’m a changed woman, and I’ve welcomed her recipes and ideas into my life. – its a cookbook perfect for introducing Saoirse to food and gives you lots of recipes to try.
Water Wipes- Although we don’t actually use Water Wipes, I do like them, and how pure and natural they are so I’m glad they were included in our box but not necessarily the best item in the box.
I was lucky enough to ask Chirin, mumpreneur and founder of Mamas box some questions too:
What inspired you to create the company mammas box?
It was having my children close in age (they are 12 months apart) and without much help, I realised there has to be a way to make this journey from pregnancy to your little one’s first birthday a little easier – and that’s why I started Mama’s Box!
What is your favourite item that you include in a box?
It’s the Belly Belt an incredible maternity invention that helps you extend your regular pants/skirts and wear them for longer during your pregnancy!
What were the top three items you couldn’t live without when you had your baby?
Sock Ons – clever little inventions that are worn over baby’s socks to keep them in place. I used to lose my baby’s socks all over the place until I came across these!
My Little Mico Nursing Cover – it was made out of light cotton, so my baby doesn’t get too hot underneath, while still providing perfect coverage and allowing me to breastfeed discretely in malls/parks etc.
A large bamboo muslin that I would use as a swaddle, pram cover, play mat or burp cloth! Lulujo have amazing ones!
How do you manage your time between family and work?
I’m not sure I do! I’m focusing on spending more quality time with my (now four and three-year-old) toddlers. Playing cars or pretend, reading books, being a good listener to them, with no digital distractions!
Any tips for expecting or new mums?
Focus on the happy moments and be grateful for every passing day!
