About Baby Boxes

Since 1938, new parents in Finland have been sent home from the hospital with one unique, yet simple gift: A cardboard box.

Filled with newborn essentials, the boxes are also designed to be a baby’s first bed. Combined with pre-natal and post-natal care and education, the boxes are credited with drastically reducing infant mortality.

About The Baby Box Co.

We are bringing the Finnish model to the rest of the world by distributing FREE boxes filled with safe and useful products to new parents. We've rolled out Baby Box programs in New Jersey, Ohio, Alabama, Canada and the United Kingdom with more coming soon and we're on track to ship millions of boxes in 2017 and 2018 worldwide.

You can read more about us on NPR, CBS, NBC, CNN, and The NY Times.
