Lidl is offering parents a chance to get their hands on some baby essentials without spending a single penny
Being a parent can be so incredibly expensive – you’ve got food to buy, new clothes to purchase, not to mention an abundance of nappies, baby wipes and all that jazz.
But thankfully one supermarket chain are offering mums and dads an easy way to get themselves a baby box filled with these sorts of goodies, and the best part is that it’s completely free.
Lidl have teamed up with The Baby Box Co to give away Baby Boxes filled with nappies, wipes, muslin cloths and more, reports Manchester Evening News.
But what’s really interesting is that the baby boxes are made from thick cardboard and can be used as an alternative to a traditional Moses basket or cot.
They come complete with a firm mattress, waterproof mattress cover and cotton sheet, so you can do as the Finnish do and use it as your baby’s bed for the first eight months of their life.
If that weren’t enough, there’s also measuring tape on the inside wall to help you keep track of your baby’s growth.
Each of the boxes is gender neutral, featuring an animal theme.
All you have to do in order to get your hands on one is to watch a video and complete a 15-minute online course online.
A spokesperson for Lidl said: “We are proud to partner with The Baby Box Co, which offers free online parenting courses from healthcare experts and free rewards for completing them – like the high quality baby boxes which come with one pack of Lupilu newborn nappies and one pack of Lupilu newborn wipes to help new parents in those first days of parenthood.”
Those wishing to claim their free box need only visit the Lidl website.
As well as teaming up with Baby Box, Lidl are also about to launch a huge sale on baby items.
The sale, which launches in UK stores this Thursday, includes price reductions on everything from high chairs to clothing and a digital bath and room thermometer.
