Are you pregnant, looking for the perfect shower gift, or just had a baby? As you all know Baby Bailey #3 is on the way and here at Free For All we have been searching high and low to bring you the newest and best baby products. The Baby Box Company is the perfect shower gift; I would have been so happy and eternally grateful to have received The Baby Box Company box with my boys but I hadn't discovered it yet. The Baby Box Company Box comes in different varieties from just the Baby Box to a completely filled Baby Box with everything to get you started.
The Baby Box I received for review is the Classic Box (pictured below) and is priced perfect for gifting at $99.99.


The Classic Box includes
1 X traditional Finnish-inspired baby box (length 70 cm, width 43 cm and height 27 cm) and lid designed with The Baby Box Company's current collection pattern
1 X baby mattress fitted to the baby box with waterproof cover and 100% cotton sheet

We are always on the go so I love the portability of The Baby Bed Box. It is perfect for baby to sleep in when you are traveling. It saves you the convenience of having to call your hotels front desk and go through the process of getting a crib (if they even have them) brought to your room. I always hated to use hotel cribs because I always felt they were dirty; even after I cleaned the dust off of them and wiped down the mattress with disinfecting wipes and added my own brought from home sheets. With The Baby Bed Box all you have to do is pop your box in the car along with your regular luggage and you are all set. It is extremely light weight and easy to carry!
The Classic Box
Finland's First Baby Box's
I love how the Baby Box came to be the idea behind The Baby Box is so unique I just had to share with you! For 75 years, Finland's expectant mothers have been given a box by the state that serves as a starter kit for their new baby. It contains clothes, blankets, and other newborn necessities, and the box itself--which is lined with a mattress--can even be used as the child's first bed. It is believed that these baby boxes have helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates. The tradition dates back to 1938. In the 1930s, Finland was a poor country and infant mortality was high, but the figures improved rapidly in the decades that followed. The contents of the box have changed a good deal over the years, reflecting changing times. During the '30s and '40s, it contained fabric because mothers were accustomed to making the baby's clothes, but the fabric was replaced by ready-made clothes in the '50s. The box is credited with helping to decrease Finland's infant mortality rate from 65 deaths for each 1,000 children born in 1938 to 3 deaths per 1,000 births in 2013. It has become an established part of the Finnish rite of passage towards motherhood, uniting generations of women and contributing to Finland's ranking as one of the best countries in the world for mothers to live. So when you buy The Baby Box you may not only be buying a gift you may be a lifesaver!

I am an all natural mommy and we use mostly all natural products whenever possible in our home. I am a huge fan of The Nature Box. The Nature Box is full of all of your favorite natural baby goodies. The Baby Box Company has done all the research and tested hundreds of items to determine which organic body wash really is the safest, which natural swaddles are the softest, and more. Pamper your precious little one with gentle bamboo wipes, soft linens, and organic body wash sure to soothe even the most sensitive skin. The Nature Box saves new parents time and money by providing a comprehensive natural tool kit for taking care of baby! The Nature Box is perfect for the mom who hasn't always used all natural but wants to with baby. It is the perfect place to start!




I love that The Baby Box Company gives back! The Baby Box Company sponsors Children International, a portion of each sale at The Baby Box Company goes directly towards this charity’s tremendous healthcare initiatives for underprivileged women and children. They also have a "One for One" program as a cornerstone of their business model, which enables them to collaborate with social workers on the ground both here in the United States and abroad in countries like Haiti and the Philippines to provide needy new parents with safe sleep boxes and quality care products for their infants. The Baby Box Company really cares for babies well being and their families. The Baby Box Company has also been kind enough to partner with me to help The Williamson Treatment Center a drug rehabilitation center for recovering addicts with their baby program. The Williamson Treatment Center is a dear cause to me as so many here in Appalachia have been effected by the drug problem including many of my own family members and have struggled with addiction during pregnancy. This is one of the few places here that helps pregnant women recover from drug addiction. Next week I will be sharing a post about my work there and the journey to sobriety for pregnant women. A huge thank you to The Baby Box Company for giving these women hope and something to be proud.

  1. I love their boxes and have recommended them to friends and family going to baby showers. It's the only gift you need because it has almost everything a mom needs for her newborn.
