Default introducing chi to whelping box

my bitch (Poppy) is currently 50 days into pregnancy. I have had the whelping box set up and in its corner for the last 4 days but she has absolutely no interest in it. in fact, she is avoiding it at all costs! I don't want to force her into it because then she will be even less likely to enter of her own accord. I know it isn't vital right this minute that she sleeps in it but just getting her to relax in it would be a start. anyone have any tips on getting her to go in it? she's a mummies girl and usually sleeps with me. I am willing to set up camp on the floor next to the whelping box if that's what is needed. thanks in advance for any advice/tips

try warming up one of those magic bag things and put it in the whelping box, or a old shirt with your sent on it would work too, my chi girl is pregnant too and I warmed up a magic bag put it in there and now she doesn't wanna come out.

Thanks for the reply.

The babies are here now anyway I ended up putting the whelping box on the bed at night so she would sleep in it and then moving it back on to the floor. She still tried to have her pups in the washing basket and then under the bed covers though! We ended up covering the bed in sheets and bringing the box on to the bed at the time of whelping just to keep her calm as she was getting distressed trying to get up!
