There are SO many subscription services out there right now. I think you can find one for anything. I love the idea of monthly subscriptions, but I sometimes find it difficult to find one that matches value with things I actually need or can use. There is a new subscription based service called Growing Roots that offered to send me a box and I was excited to try it out because it is meant for beginning families and sounded like a great fit for a new mom like me.
Disclosure: I received the Ultimate Growing Roots Box from Growing Roots at no cost in exchange for my honest review. I only write about products I love. Affiliate links are included in this post. This means if you make a purchase I will may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.
Growing Roots sends a curated subscription box of quality crafted products for mom and baby. Each box encourages connection and inspires making memories with family. It supports moms in the early years of parenting by providing inspiration on parenting techniques and common hurdles you might face.
Each box contains:
- 1 research based parenting technique
- 3-5 quality crafted and natural goodies to provide a healthy foundation for you and your child
The founder of Growing Roots is a mom and former high school counselor and teacher with a Masters in counseling so she knows what she is talking about when she puts these boxes together. You can tell that every little detail was carefully thought out down to the packaging. I love the packaging. There are quotes from famous children’s stories and the wood grain printing is a beautiful touch.
The box I received is all about sleep and includes products to help me and my family get a good nights sleep. My “sweet dreams” box includes:
- Little Flowers Soap Co. Lavender Bath Salts
- Growing Roots Shop Eye Pillow
- Packet of Lavender Seeds
- Abbie’s House Bedtime Chart + Six Magnet Wood Tiles
- Someday by Alison McGhee
- The Going To Bed Book by Sandra Boynton
- Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss (pocket size)
- A few tips about bedtime routine (this is the research based parenting technique)
You can see how much Aiden enjoys the books and I love the bedtime chart! It will be a lot of fun for Aiden to use as he gets older. Check out our unboxing:
I am a big fan of lavender so I love all the relaxing products for mom. The bath salts gave me an excuse to pamper myself with a bath!
As it is the first, this box had a few extra items than the normal subscription comes with; however, I love that this box has products for babies and moms. In my first year as a mom I received a subscription box and looked forward to getting it in the mail each month. The only down side to that particular subscription was that it was more baby focused so there weren’t as many products for me (and as a new mom you need things for you). This box has a great mix of products for baby AND mom!
I love that the products are all from small shops. The box came with a pamphlet with details about each product and many of them are from Etsy shops. In addition to supporting small shops, Growing Roots also supports literacy programs. The proceeds from the May box supported OLHSA Early Head Start program in Pontiac, MI, a program designed to help young children and pregnant mothers in low-income households.
Overall this is a great subscription for new moms. It’s helpful and a great value. The monthly cost is reasonable considering the number and quality of items you receive. You can pay month-to-month or prepay and save on a three, six, or twelve month subscription. Growing Roots would make an excellent gift for a mom-to-be. I know I would appreciate it!
