I have been reading about these amazing boxes that are delivered for free to every new mother in Finland. The boxes are beautiful and contain everything you need for LO. However I can't find out how/where to get them! Does anyone know?
'The maternity package is not commercially available. It is available solely as a benefit offered under the Finnish social security system. The items it contains are sourced through a competitive bidding process complying with EU law.'
Thanks for all your replies! I have had a look into them and the British baby box is cheaper but it offers poor value in comparison to the others which literally contain everything that you would need.
I sent an email to the finnishbabybox.co/ and the boxes that this company sells aren't the real Kela boxes. They look like them, but have different content and containers that they sourced from their own suppliers, so don't have the Finnish Govt. quality control.
Howver www.realfinnishbabybox.com are selling the real boxes! These are the ones that Finnish mothers get! They literally contain everything, so I have just ordered mine :D So excited! I will let you all know what it's really like when it arrives.
