BBC News – Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes

For 75 years, Finland's expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It's like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates.

It's a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it's designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they're from, an equal start in life.

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

What an amazing design thinking story. This is just like our LOLA box, only even more sustainable. Look at the history of the design over the centuries and see how context and time changed it. I would make one side removable so it becomes a bed-side bed.
