Many of you know that I recently had a baby — my son Maverick was born on 12/22/13 (joining big sis Bali, 5) and I received one of the most unique baby gifts — a Baby Box! What is a Baby Box? Well, after doing a little research I learned that all new moms in Finland receive a Baby Box from the government. It serves as baby’s first sleeping place and is filled with items that help baby get a safe & healthy start to life. A few fabulous women in the US fell in love with this concept after hearing that the Finnish government actually sent a Baby Box to Prince William and Princess Kate. They brought the idea to the U.S. and The Baby Box Co. was launched!
The Baby Box I received included the box, a mattress, cotton sheet, “green” laundry detergent, pacifiers, mittens, onesies, socks, aden + anais swaddle blanket, the cutest baby hat and other goodies. Now you can get one of your very own! Just “LIKE” The Baby Box Co. on Facebook and let us know why you would love to win a Baby Box! (comment below OR on the my post on the Crock Pot Girl Facebook page.) I’ll select the winner at random at 11:59pm on Friday 05/23/14.
One other thing I love about the Baby Box Co. is they have a “one for one” program and for every Baby Box sold the company gives a Baby Box to Mothers in need in countries such as the US, Haiti and the Philippines.
I’ll post some pics of Mav in his Baby Box in the next few days…he loves it and big sis actually loves it as a hide-n-seek hiding spot!
