Frequently Asked Questions
Hey - Did you Change your Name?
Yes! We’re Hey, Milestone, and we were formerly called Noobie Box. The company launched in 2016, and we took over in 2021. Now that we’re up and running, we’ve re-launched with a new name and new look, but we’re still the same great company, bringing you Free Sample Boxes for pregnancy and parenthood.

What Sample Boxes Do You Offer?
We offer these Sample Boxes:
- The Pregnancy Sample Box, which is perfect for any stage of pregnancy
- The Family Nutrition Box, filled with Baby Food Samples and Toddler Food Samples, is perfect when you’re starting your little one on solid foods
- The Newborn Sample Box, which is perfect for when you’re near your baby’s due date, or when your baby is 0-3 months old.
What’s in the Pregnancy Sample Box?
The Free Pregnancy Sample Box is filled with high-quality samples, perfect for supporting you during pregnancy and into the first few months of parenthood. The products in the box are carefully curated by our expert team of parents, and we’re always on the lookout for newest and best items on the market. So check on the product page to find out what’s in the box you’ll be ordering. Boxes are curated on a quarterly basis and are subject to change.
What’s the Difference Between the Pregnancy Sample Box and the Newborn Sample Box?
The Newborn Sample Box is designed for 4th Trimester support and the first 3 months of your baby’s life. The Pregnancy Sample Box is focused on items to support you during pregnancy. Please make sure to choose the correct box for your age & stage. We recommend you order each box at the appropriate window to ensure you receive the most appropriate and longest lasting samples for that time period.
Which Brands Do You Partner With?
Here at Hey, Milestone, we pride ourselves on partnering with the top brands in the marketplace, bringing you the best products for pregnancy and parenting, including the top family wellness brands. You’ll find brands whose names you already know and love, as well as new and emerging brands as they launch.
Check out our Hey, Milestone Partners Page to see all the brands we’re working with.
Where Are the Hey, Milestone Free Sample Boxes Available?
You can receive one of our Hey, Milestone Free Sample Boxes in the United States. We ship anywhere in the 48 contiguous states in the US, also known as the “Lower 48”. Unfortunately, that means we do not ship to Hawaii, Alaska, U.S. Territories, APO/FPO, Canada or other International addresses.
Do you Ship Outside the U.S.?
No, we do not. Sorry. We only ship to the 48 states of the contiguous United States. Unfortunately, we do not ship to Hawaii, Alaska, U.S.Territories, APO/FPO, Canada, or other International addresses at this time.
What’s the Best Time to Order my Pregnancy Sample Box?
You can order your Free Pregnancy Sample Box anytime while you’re pregnant, but we recommend you order in the first 2 Trimesters. If you’re within a month of your due date, we recommend ordering the Newborn Sample Box instead. [LINK] But, you should note that you can only order one of each type of Sample Box, per household, per year.
What’s the Best Time to Order the Family Nutrition Sample Box?
Since the Family Nutrition Box is filled with Baby Food Samples and Toddler Food Samples, which are perishable and come with expiration dates for freshness, we recommend that you order this box only when you’re ready to start your little one on Solid Foods or if you have older children. We recommend that the food samples be consumed within 30 days of receiving your box for maximum freshness, so don’t order too early.
What’s the Best Time to Order the Newborn Sample Box?
The Free Newborn Sample Box is meant for anyone who’s within a month of their baby’s due date, or if your little one is from 0-3 months. If your pregnancy is still in the early stages, the Pregnancy Sample Box is the right one for you! And if you’ve got a Newborn baby, or are about to have one, the Newborn Sample Box is perfect for you.
How do I Sign Up to Get Your Emails?
When you order your Free Sample Box you'll be automatically subscribed to our weekly Milestone Email Newsletters. You’ll receive emails based on your due date with expert advice and information about every stage of pregnancy and the first year of parenthood, as well as coupons and special offers from our partners. We think you’ll love getting our emails, but if you don’t, you can unsubscribe anytime.

Are the Sample Boxes Really Free?

Is this a Subscription-Based Box?
Nope. Hey, Milestone is not a subscription box company. The Pregnancy Sample Box is a one-time gift, so you’re under no obligation to order any additional boxes.
