Our Story

Traditionally for more than seventy-five years in Finland new mothers have received the “Baby Box” from the Finnish government which contains many items needed for the care of the new born baby for the first few months of their lives, the most important time. The baby box itself can be used as a baby crib and provides a strong and safe environment for the new baby. 

This tradition started in the 1930’s. At the time, Finland was a poor country with a high infant mortality rate (deaths of babies from unknown causes, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS). In Finland, in 1938, this was reported as 65 babies per 1000 live births, died from SIDS. The Baby Box is credited with helping to reduce the Finnish Infant Mortality Rate (SIDS) significantly over the years to only 3 deaths per 1000 live births in 2013.

A BBC documentary reported that Finland now has the lowest rate of SIDS in the world.

It was designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they were from, an equal start in life. The Baby Box was initially given to needy families on low incomes but since 1949 all women, who when 4 months pregnant were required to attend an Ante-natal Clinic, were given the maternity package. This also ensured adequate health care for Mum and baby.

In the Baby Box the  mother not only finds baby clothes, bathing products, diapers and  mattress but the box is strong and safe with four solid walls that ensures safety – the baby feels like it is still inside  mother. After all, our midwife recommends the first days of the new born to develop quickly and strongly.

In Finland, mothers are offered a Maternity Package and may choose either a cash payment or the Baby Box. However, more than 95 percent of mothers choose the Baby Box. They believe the box and contents are worth much more.

Finally Lithuanian mothers do not have to jealously watch the Finns receive their Baby Box! 

Because you can now buy the Lithuanian baby box, “the Baby’s Nest / Kūdikio lizdas and we hope every future Mum and Dad at home will buy the irreplaceable box which has all the necessities they and their new baby will need.
