I got my baby box today and it’s amazing. It is super cute, and my daughter loves it. It’s the perfect travel box to take to a family member’s house for her to nap or sleep in. Plus it had a bunch of great free samples Inside. Very much worth the time to sign up!


I just picked mine up at Walgreens today! The box is comes in is really big, I was surprised when they brought it from the back lol. My baby still fits in the box but I think I will use it for playtime and then as storage. The mattress is comes with is nice and my sample bag came with a pack of dove baby wipes, dove men’s items, some coupons, and a bunch of other little samples. Thanks again! The box is so cute!! Mine has little birds on it.


I picked mine up today at the local hospital where I had actually given birth. It was a larger box than I expected and had a pillow like mattress in it with a cover. It had a blue zippered bag with samples. They were mostly for personal hygiene for the mother and not the baby. There were Face wipes, Dove samples and detergent sample.

      Darn!

  3. Elisha

    Closest place to me in raleigh was Greensboro. Kinda far for a box.

  4. Hannah

    Just picked mine up yesterday! The baby box will be perfect to take on our upcoming vacation. Mine included several Dove samples as well!

    • Jennifer (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wahoo! We are so glad you got this, Hannah!

  5. Katy

    Thank you! I watched some videos, took a short quiz and got a message saying the box will be ready will be ready for pick up in 2-4 weeks at my nearest Walgreens about 20 minutes away.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! That’s perfect Katy! You’re so welcome!

  6. liz

    One thing that happened to me is at the begining it said “yes in your area” when I entered my info then once I finished it said it was in a nearby state.

  7. Just passing through

    I saw these at my YMCA!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      How cool! Thanks for sharing!

    I got mine over the weekend. It is a really nice box with a snug fitting mattress. There were a bunch of little samples, the same ones shown in the top picture. I was surprised that so many of the samples were for men, not babies. Also, the first description I heard of the box stated that the box came with a lid so it could be used for storage when your baby outgrows it. Mine did not come with a lid. I’m not sure what I will do with the box when baby outgrows it. No complaints just my observations about this offer. I think it is neat that the baby box organization is distributing inexpensive but safe, cozy places for babies to sleep.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing with us what your box was like Jessica! Good to know!

  9. Melissa

    So bummed that it is not offered in my area! (Central, IL). I’m expecting a baby in May and would love one of these! 🙁 It looks like you can buy one for around $60 but that is pretty pricey.

  10. Natalie

    I watched the videos and took the quiz but after the “passed” screen, it said they couldn’t find any sites in my area.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! 🙁

  11. Peggy

    I went through the whole process and it told I could pick one up – on the other side of the state – 8 hours away! I emailed them and asked why it couldn’t be shipped to me as other people had that option. Their reply – we’re not set up to mail the boxes unless you purchase one. ??? Very frustrating and confusing.

  12. Jessica L Cossin

    Thanks for letting me know about where its available in Massachusetts. Nothing is ever available in the Western part of the state, and I’m not purchasing a box for a free sample! It sounds great if you live in the right place!

  13. Jamie

    Thanks for sharing! Expecting our first baby in July. Watched a few videos and took a short quiz. Nearest pickup location to me was in Los Angeles, but I was offered shipping for $4. Worth it to me – Thanks!

    • Jennifer (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You are so welcome! Congratulations!

  14. Sarah

    Shipping was $4 for me in California. Figured it was worth a shot to see what kind of samples we get. 🙂

    • Jennifer (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think it’s worth it, too! Make sure to let us know what you think!

  15. Katie

    Did this in New Jersey – not worth it! Box fell apart and had like 3 samples, including one whole diaper. At least it was free. The cats enjoyed the box until I threw it away.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh no! Sorry to hear the box was disappointing. Thanks for sharing your experience with us Katie!

  16. Liz

    Watched the videos took the quiz and got the babybox. I did have to pay $4 for shipping but Im sure it’ll be worth it:)

  17. momo

    Was avil in my area. Had option to ship for $3 or pickup at FedEx or nearby adoption center. It was shipped quickly & ready for pickup already. I haven’t picked up yet, have 7 days. It’s free, stop complaining ;-p

  18. Amie

    Thanks you

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  19. kerRI

    That baby is abso-STINKIN-lutely adorable !!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I know! SO cute!

    Why do people complain about free stuff? I don’t get it. I chose to have mine shipped for $3, to donate to people that foster newborns. It arrived a few days ago and is actually quite nice. I got all of the samples shown above and the box/mattress itself is sturdy, well-made, and quite spacious! I’m very satisfied, and feel that it was $3 well spent.

  21. Tia

    I live in far north Dallas, Tx. I received the box over the weekend.Mine did not have a lid or samples. It’s a good size box and we will use it.

  22. Mary Price

    Crap offer if not available to everybody!

    • Dylan

      *sigh*

  23. sann

    If you look up Finnish baby box these cut sids to 0%. I would say that is a good statistic. The Finnish government gives them to every family having a baby.
    Has anyone from Oregon been able to get one?

  24. Uni

    I m in Nj and i paid for shipping $3 as I would have spent that money in gas to pick it up. Quiet disappointed with the content honestly- few sample size items more for mom and dad than baby. So don’t feel bad on missing out. You can get most if not of these totally free throuh regular sample sites

  25. *sunshine*

    Went and picked mine up and it didn’t have the lid and only a few of the samples up above.

  26. TravelSuz

    Got my Baby Box in the mail and I love it!! It will be a nice surprise for my son and daughter. I loved the idea, but now that I have it I really think that if you order it, it will be worth it.

    • Jennifer (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome!Thanks for letting us know!

    • Allison

      How long did it take for everyone to get their box by mail? Also, did you receive any emails after the first confirmation? Thank you!

  27. Janette

    In Arizona I paid $10 for shipping to my house because there wasn’t pickup available. No lid was included as there were incidents of unsafe sleep with a lid on. Few samples, but a really good option for a safe sleep space if you don’t have one. Worth it to keep baby safe.
