Parenthood Survival is a brand new subscription box that caters to parents and babies during that oh-so-challenging first year. They promise to deliver fun and useful items that’ll (hopefully!) help things go a little smoother for everyone involved.
The website states that the box is best suited for expecting parents and babies up to 9 months old. However, I have 14-month old twin girls and will still be able to put most of the items we received to use.
Parenthood Survival boxes are customizable by gender (neutral also available) and subscriptions are $34.99 per month.
Here’s what I received…
BabyLegs Legwarmers in “Blossom” – These are adorable! They’re one-size-fits-most legwarmers that serve as an easier alternative to pants, leggings or tights. I also hear that they really come in handy for pottytraining. We actually have a few pairs of these that I got on sale when the girls were newborns. I keep forgetting to get them out and see how they fit… I should probably get on that soon, cos I’m pretty sure I have some Christmas-themed ones. (So cute!) (Amazon Price: $11.99)
Angel Dear Swaddle Blanket in “Ikat” – This is a super soft swaddle blanket made of 100% prewashed cotton muslin. It’s a good size (47″ x 47″) and has a simple, not overly girly pattern. Although we don’t swaddle the girls anymore, I’m sure we’ll find another use for this… I’m actually using it to cover my goosebump-y arms as I type up this review. 😉 (Amazon Price: $12.99)
Indestructibles “Hey Diddle Diddle” Book – I’ve heard about these books and wanted to buy one for the girls, but now I don’t have to. (Well, I still can, but you know…) Indestructibles are books designed for babies to chew, drool, and generally wreak havoc on. But not to worry… The pages are made of some kinda heavy duty paper-like material that can’t be ripped, torn or punctured. You can even throw it in the washing machine or dishwasher. Crazytown! (Amazon Price: $4.46)
Parents’ Night Out by Knock Knock Pads – This pad has “more than 59” handy forms to fill out for the babysitter when mom and dad actually get to leave the house together. There’s sections for contact numbers, meal menus, bedtime routines, and more. We don’t need anything like this yet, but I’m guessing when the girls get a bit older this may come in handy. (Amazon Price: $15.16)
Chill, Baby Volume Control Pacifier – I think this is the only thing in the box that we definitely won’t be using. It’s for ages 0-6 months, so obviously we can’t use it… Not that we would have anyway, since the girls never really cared for pacifiers. (Woo!) I do think this is a totally fun (and very relatable) design though. 🙂 (Amazon Price: $8.33)
I gotta say, this was quite an impressive “first box”. While I would have loved to get it when my girls were younger, it had a lot of great things we can still use at 14 months.
All totaled, the items in my box are valued at $52.93! Way more than the $34.99/month cost of the subscription. You go, Parenthood Survival box! Nice job. 😉
