The Best Baby and Toddler Subscription Boxes for Busy Parents

Babies grow so fast that it sometimes feels like they barely get a chance to wear something before it’s too small. These subscription boxes will help ensure that there is something fun (and often eco-friendly and organic) to wear in your baby’s ever-changing size.

Start by taking a style quiz, including brand preferences and budget. Then Dopple will put together a curated box of clothes for your child based on your responses. Boxes (called Drops) are delivered quarterly, but you can request or postpone a shipment at any time. Keep what you like, send back what doesn’t work.

Cost: There is a $10 nonrefundable service fee for each Drop, which is credited toward anything you purchase. The rest of the cost is dependent on how many items you choose to keep (returns are always free).

Three outfits for your baby (Day Out, Playtime, Snooze), delivered monthly. There are not too many choices with this option. You simply select the age of your baby and which subscription you want, and that’s it.

Cost: Varies depending on the subscription you choose. Month-to-month cost is $69 per box; three months, $65; six months, $63. All plans automatically renew on the first of the month, until you cancel.

Kid Box

The Baby Box has five items, and once you order your first box you are a member. When you sign up for a box, you enter the gender of the baby you are shopping for (unfortunately you have to select either boy or girl, there is no neutral option). Then you are shown a series of outfits that you give either a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, to help identify the style of clothing you are looking for. Seven seasonal boxes are shipped each year. You can select which ones you want, when you want them shipped, and skip any you are not interested in. You will be charged for each box after it has shipped. Cool fact: Kid Box has donated more than $19 million in new clothing to date.

Cost: The Baby Box with five items costs $68. There are options for older kids as well, prices vary.

Babies grow in the blink of an eye, and it is so easy to quickly find yourself with a drawer (or two or three …) of clothing that no longer fits. This service can help empty those drawers, at least a little bit. Simply select the capsule you want, take a quick style quiz and answer a few questions, and then your first box is on the way. You keep the clothing for as long as you want, and when you are ready to exchange it, fill out a swap form online. A new box will arrive, and you can place the items from your previous box into a pre-paid shipping bag to return. Repeat as often as you like. Genius!

Cost: Essential Capsule, seven items, $24 per month. Other options are available, see the website for more information and pricing.
