In Finland, mothers to be can claim either a maternity grant of 140 euros or a maternity package containing useful items such as clothing, blankets, nail clippers, muslins etc that is delivered in a box that can be used as a crib!

You can see the package and it's inventory here

What a lovely idea! I'd love to get a package like this through the post!
Thought I found it fascinating!

That's brilliant! I'd choose that over the money any day.

Its a fab idea, though a bit amusing to think of all the FInnish babies being like clones in thier matching outfits.

I love the story behind these boxes. Does anyone know where/how I can get hold of one?
