More than 1,300 people in the North-east have received a baby box since the project’s launch.
The Scottish Government began distributing the packages to new parents on August 15 this year, and so far 1,328 in the NHS Grampian area have received a baby box.
Under the scheme, which is aimed at tackling inequality and promoting health, new parents receive a box of essential items such as clothes, books, blankets and bibs.
The boxes, inspired by Finnish baby boxes, can also be used for newborn babies to sleep in.
Nation-wide, the number of people signing up for the box sits at 18,995 with more than 10,000 already delivered.
Mark McDonald, Aberdeen Donside MSP and Minister for Childcare at the Scottish Government, was delighted so many people have come forward to sign up for a box.
He said: “It is great to see so many people take up the opportunity to register for a baby box.
“I believe it is really helping families across the country to get a good secure start.
“The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive, which is good to hear.
“The baby boxes are about making a positive start for parents and that seems to be happening.”
In the NHS Grampian area 2,143 people – including those still pregnant – have signed up to receive a box since August.
The North-east is the third highest region in the country for box registration.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is top of the list with 4,998 families looking for a baby box, while NHS Lothian came second with 3,321.
Mr McDonald added: “I have spoken to friends who have received a baby box and they are extremely delighted and think it is a great idea. It is great to see they are helping people out.”
Going forward, the MSP has said the box’s use will be looked at.
“We have said we will examine the boxes to see what is being used and what isn’t being used as much,” he added.
“I am sure, given time, we will be adding to the box as they seem to be very popular right across Grampian and the rest of the country.”
