For the past 75 years, expectant moms in Finland have been receiving “baby boxes” from the government. Not only are these freebies packed with useful essentials such as diapers, sleepers, onesies, blankets and a snowsuit, but the box itself – along with the mattress pad that’s provided – becomes a bassinet encouraging safe sleep habits.
I love this idea! As an infant/baby massage instructor, I would love to see this implemented in my community and would love to take it even further by offering my courses to these mothers. We have classes in Russellville, Arkansas. I can also set up classes in Morrilton, Conway, and other areas nearby, by request.
