Life | SIDS Prevention | What is Baby Box?

 

With the arrival of each of our newborn babies the worry of SIDS is a huge burden on our minds. Each night my husband and I do a simple check that our babies are still breathing to bring peace to ourselves. It’s a scary thought that a simple blanket that you intended for warmth can be overcrowding in their crib and aid in SIDS.

Using the Baby Box reduces my stress when I need a place to lay my baby girl down to deal with my toddler’s antics. It is a place where I know my baby will be safe when I need to take a break from holding her. And it is a long tradition of the country with one of the lowest infant mortality rates.

Dating back to the beloved 75 year old tradition from Finland, Baby Boxes have helped ease the worry of parents and enabled them to be confident in starting this new chapter of their lives. “It is believed that these Baby Boxes have helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates. The Baby Box is credited with helping to decrease Finland’s infant mortality rate from 65 deaths for each 1,000 children born in 1938 to 3 deaths per 1,000 births in 2013.” For more information on Baby Boxes click here
