Official figures show that more than 7,800 baby boxes were delivered to expectant parents in the north and north-east during 2019.
The Scottish Government revealed the data as it hailed a 96% take-up rate of the baby box initiative across the nation.
The box, which can be used as a safe sleeping space itself, contains essential items such as a digital ear thermometer, clothes and a blanket.
There were 45,558 delivered across Scotland in 2019, an average of 876 a week, which is down slightly on the 1,000 issued per week in the first year after the policy was introduced in August 2017.
However, the Scottish Government said the proportion of families requesting the box had actually increased since 2017, and that a total of more than 115,000 had now been distributed.
In the NHS Grampian area, there were 5,016 of the baby boxes delivered last year, while there were 2,243 sent out to parents in Highland, a further 204 in Shetland, 174 in the Western Isles and 170 in Orkney.
The NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde area had the highest number of requests, at 11,258, followed by Lothian at 7,845 and Lanarkshire at 5,234.
The box which travelled the furthest last year was delivered to one of the northernmost isles of Shetland, more than 400 miles from the depot in Leith where they are stored.
The boxes were redesigned by a team of children and young people earlier this year to feature iconic landmarks such as Ben Nevis, Glenfinnan Viaduct and Edinburgh Castle.
Last night, Children’s Minister Maree Todd said: “I would like to thank everyone involved – from organisations providing items, to box packers, to the health workers delivering the boxes – for making sure every child gets the best start in life.
“We now have 96% of expectant parents requesting a baby box, a big rise on the 85% when they were first launched in 2017.
“In total we have now delivered more than 115,000 boxes to families across Scotland which is a huge vote of confidence.
“The baby box provides essential products for families and babies and can bring much-needed comfort to those who might not have family or friends around to shower their little one with gifts when they arrive, especially over Christmas and New Year.”
