Baby Box Bassinets may be a newer concept on this side of the globe, but have been used consistently in Finland for the past 75 years. They are said to be the country to have the lowest infant mortality rate in the world due to these little boxes which offer safe sleeping arrangements (lowering the risk of SIDS) for their little ones.
