Why do Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes???

i found this very interesting article about Finland and why babies there sleep in cardboard boxes... the reason... to help lower infant mortality. After reading the article it makes sense...something so simple!

    In the article it also says the government gives a maternity package to all expectant mothers... there is a picture in the article of what they give...I thought this was awesome!

    The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.

    It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.

      Thats pretty cool. Wish our government would do thoughtful things like that.
