Recently, I have seen more and more subscription boxes coming to life. It seems as though there is a subscription service for every category: food, clothing, make-up, and parenting! With so many options how does one choose which box is the right choice? Here is our round-up of the 5 best subscription boxes for new moms.
5. Bluum – $34
Starting off the list is Bluum. Bluum is a great new mom box that ships out on the 9th of each month. However, if you like to be surprised when a subscription box arrives at your door, this isn’t the subscription for you. Bluum releases through email the contents of the box every first of the month. In addition, products are partially selected based on Amazon reviews and quickly could be discovered on your own. However, it is personalized because each item included is in relevance to your child’s age.
4. Cricket Crate – $60 (3-month subscription)
Cricket Crate consists of development items for babies ages 0-36 month. All the products are backed by the Seattle Children’s Hospital and are all geared towards scientific findings! With Cricket Crate not only are items delivered! The curators also include new mom tips and inspiration in every pack! The only downside is that the crate just has a 3-month subscription, so it is more of a commitment than the other subscriptions on the list.
3. Growing Roots – $39.99

Growing roots is a new mom monthly subscription box, containing 3-5 items, which could be bought in 1, 3 or 6 Month subscription intervals. Each box’s theme is bonding, so every item helps new mothers bond with their babies! In addition, the curator of the box is a mother and teacher who wants to help families connect. Before purchasing one of their boxes, you are asked to put in the age of your child(ren), this ensures the products chosen are age appropriate and will be loved by your baby.
2. Sensory TheraPLAY Box – $39.95
Coming in as number two on the new mom subscription box list is the Sensory TheraPLAY Box. This box ships out on the first of the month and includes 5-6 items that help improve fine motor skills for your child! Each box is put together by a pediatric OT, so each item is either tried and true or used in the therapy world. Boxes can be bought with a monthly or three-month subscription.
1. Noobie Pregnancy Box – $24.95

Finally, the Noobie Pregnancy Box finishes the list taking the number one spot! Why do I recommend this box most of all? The answer is simple: they give every new mom a free box per pregnancy! That means you can easily sample their selections to see if you like them before committing to the price tag. The free box includes products, samples and more. After deciding to continue your subscription, you will receive five items and parenting tips within each box! Boxes range from age 0-10+ months old! In conclusion, when taking the items, the fee box, and the price tag it is the most noteworthy on the list.
