About Finnish Baby Boxes
Finnish Baby Boxes used to be original to Finland only. Fortunately for us, the Baby Box Company has partnered with Preggie Baby Boutique to bring you these beautiful Finnish Baby Boxes.
Created in the 1930s when Finland faced a national crisis; their infant mortality rates were sky high and too many babies died. Part of the problem was that parents were sleeping their babies. To solve this crisis, the government of Finland started giving free maternity packages – the Finnish baby box. These Finnish baby boxes included everything the new mom needed, including a stylishly decorated cardboard box, where babies could safely sleep apart from their babies, clothes, swaddle blankets, diapers, and other baby products Finnish parents needed to take care of their infants.
Every since Finnish Baby Boxes have been given out to its citizens, infant mortality rates in Finland have decreased and today Finland has one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world!
