That's all from Holyrood Live today, Tuesday 20 November 2018.
Social Security Secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville confirmed the new Best Start Grant will open for applications from 10 December.
The first payments will be made before Christmas.
Low-income families will receive £600 at the birth of their first child and £300 for each subsequent child.
Two further payments of £250 will also be made - one when a child starts nursery and another at primary school age.
Ms Somerville said these later payments would be introduced from summer next year.
