What is a Baby Box?
Baby boxes are sturdy cardboard boxes that expectant mothers in Finland have been using as bassinets since the 1930s. They offer growing families a portable and safe place for their newborn to sleep from birth until roughly 6 months of age and have been known to reduce bed sharing - a leading cause of SIDS. Finnbin baby boxes come filled with essential baby products like diapers, thermometers and clothing. Many point to this innovative tradition for helping the country achieve one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the World.
Research from Experts
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends creating a safe sleep space and reduce risk factors by placing the baby on his or her back on a firm sleep surface such as a crib or bassinet with a tight-fitting sheet. Avoid use of soft bedding, including crib bumpers, blankets, pillows and soft toys. The crib should be bare. Share a bedroom with parents, but not the same sleeping surface, preferably until the baby turns 1 but at least for the first six months. Room-sharing decreases the risk of SIDS by as much as 50%. And avoid baby's exposure to smoke, alcohol and illicit drugs. Putting your newborn to sleep in a Finnbin on the floor in your room close to your bed is an easy way to help you adhere to the recommendations from the leading organization for pediatricians.

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!
