Studies have found that Finland has one of the lowest rates of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and using a baby box may be the reason.
The BBC reported about how baby boxes can help prevent accidental suffocation due to co-sleeping. Recently we where introduced to the Finnish Baby Box company, a company conceived from the tradition in Finland where every new mom receives a baby box filled with all of the essentials for babies first year.
The baby box contains among other things a small firm mattress that fits snugly inside the box, transforming it into a bassinet or co-sleeper. Parents use the baby box next to their bed for easy nighttime feedings as well as throughout their house during the day since it is light enough to carry into any room, keeping your baby always nearby.
The box is carefully constructed of virgin fiber sourced from European trees. Additionally the glue used to construct the box is made from wheat, corn or potato starch, and the paint is a water soluble. The well ventilated baby box is designed to be big enough for babies to securely sleep for their first 4-6 months.
Beyond the box itself, which we think is the coolest part, there are countless carefully chosen items for babies 1st year. When you order your Finnish Baby Box you can choose if you prefer a gender neutral box or one designed for girls or boys. The Finnish Baby Box company will also ask you several questions such as what time of year your baby will be born and questions about the climate where you reside. This allows them to hand pick the best items for your babies environment.
We have a hunch that soon babies throughout the United States will be sleeping soundly in their own special baby box. By the way you can use the box to store its contents for future babies to use, or a favorite among European parents is to then use the box as a beautiful toy box.

The Nursie Nursing Arm Pillow is baby feeding genius. Often the best baby products are those that make you scratch your head and wonder, “why didn’t I think of this!”
The Nursie pillow is small, about a 1/4 of the size of a regular nursing pillow making it perfect for moms on the go. The Nursie slips around your arm and puts your baby in optimal feeding position.
Not only is it a great choice for nursing moms but works just as well for bottle feeding parents. Elevating your babies upper body during feeding helps prevent gas build up in little baby bellies.
The beauty of the Nursie lies in its simplicity and smaller than usual size. Today with the shear amount of baby gear that most of us have too lug around, anything that helps remove some of that burden is always welcome. The Nursie looks like a super cute little throw pillow when not being used, whereas a Boppy or other large nursing pillow can easily consume half of your coach.
The Nursie Nursing Arm Pillow is available in a wide variety of attractive patterns including Purple Midnight Feathers, Bliss baby, Under The Sea and Dandelion.
The Nursie is made of soft plush fabrics, is generously padded with cotton filling and is machine washable. Did we mention it is handmade here in the USA? Currently you can purchase your Nursie from the Meinhart To Yours Etsy store, owned by Tiffany Meinhart.
