What is a Baby Box?
A Portable Bassinet for Nightime or Naps
Baby boxes are lightweight and sturdy cardboard boxes that expectant mothers in Finland have been using as bassinets since the 1930s. Weighing less than 5 pounds, they offer growing families a portable and safe place for their newborn baby to sleep from birth until roughly 6 months of age and have been known to reduce bed sharing - a leading cause of SIDS.
Proven To Reduce Sleep Related Risk Factors
Bed-sharing, the practice in which parents sleep in the same bed as their babies, is associated with sleep-related deaths in infants, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed. However, a research team at Temple University Hospital (TUH) has now found that face-to-face postpartum education about safe infant sleep, combined with the distribution of a baby box, reduced the rates of bed-sharing during babies’ first 8 days of life. For exclusively breastfed infants, a population at increased risk of bed-sharing, bed-sharing was reduced by 50%.
A Newborn Starter Kit With All The Essentials
Each Finnbin comes with essential baby products that expectant and adoptive parents need to help them seamlessly adjust to life with a newborn. These must-have items include gender neutral clothing up to the age of 12 months old, as well as bath and bed time necessities like towels, thermometers, soaps and lotions. Best of all, the cardboard box that includes these essentials is not just any ordinary box - it also doubles as a bassinet.
Baby boxes can help you put your baby to sleep in ways that can help reduce the risk of sids & other sleep related dangers
Evidence Based Safe Sleep Guidance from the AAP to Protect Against SIDS
Infants should sleep in the same bedroom as their parents – but on a separate surface, such as a crib or bassinet.
Baby Boxes Are The Most Sustainable & EcoFriendly Sleep Environment For A Newborn Baby
Sustainable to Create a Better Environment for Future Generations
Finnbin's corrugated baby boxes are sourced from US-based managed forestries that are certified to Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) standards, created to promote responsible forest management. A corrugated box that ends up in the ocean will biodegrade within two months. Every Finnbin baby box can be recycled and will naturally breakdown much quicker than plastic equivalents.
A Tree Is Planted For Every Finnbin Baby Box
Finnbin's ONE BOX | ONE TREE program plants a tree in a National Forest in the United States for each baby box purchased through our website. We are committed to sustainability and doing our part by actively working toward a brighter future for our children.

Nice to have a baby bed that is super portable, works well and doesn't take up much space. Wish we had heard of these when our older children were babies!
