Our July Citrus Lane newborn box for little brother showed up yesterday and I wanted to share what was inside because I haven't seen many online reviews of newborn boxes. Like last month, it was a really light and there weren't a lot of items inside, but I was still really happy with everything we received. I have been liking the newborn box better than the toddler box lately.
Here is what we received inside:
- Pack & Go Mini Mobile from Tiny Love ($11.74 on Amazon): I really love this mobile. I think it is super cute and will be handy in a number of locations, like the pack n play, stroller, carseat, etc. I love that you can just clip it wherever. It's very colorful and cute.
This month, the newborn box retailed for about $36.56, which is a bit more than $10 over the cost of the box. This is a good value for all the items inside, which we found to all be useful and cute. Citrus Lane used to claim to contain 4-5 full sized products in their boxes. It seems like now that has gone down to three full-size items and some samples.
For those of you not familiar with Citrus Lane, it is a subscription box company that offers a monthly box of products tailored to your child's age and gender for newborns to age 5. Boxes cost $25 a month, but currently, new members can save $10 on a subscription if they sign up through a referral link from someone who is already a Citrus Lane member. The Citrus Lane member will also receive a $10 credit. My referral link can be found HERE. Additionally, the coupon code TAKEHALF can get you half off your first month's box if you want to do a monthly subscription where you are charged each month. According to Citrus Lane's Facebook page, there is currently no discount code for a longer subscription other than using a referral link to sign up (though those subscriptions are already discounted some to reward people for ordering a longer term subscription).
We also received a box for our 27-month-old son. You can find that review HERE.
