I’ve written before about the importance of creating places in our home for our baby to sleep safely, safe sleep has been a priority for us from the very start of this pregnancy journey and I’ve taken great care to invest in high quality products designed to promote the safest environment possible when it comes to putting our baby down.
When Arvossa contacted me last month to see if I would be interested in reviewing one of their new Treasured Baby Boxes designed for sleeping little ones, I jumped at the chance. We’ve all heard of the Finnish tradition where the State give every new parent a cardboard box filled with baby essentials and once emptied can be used as an alternative to a cot or moses basket, well, Arvossa have bought this concept to the UK.
The box itself is made from strong, breathable cardboard and is the only baby box on the market in the UK which holds a British Safety Certificate. Unlike others available, the box does not have handles to ensure it cannot be carried while a sleeping baby is tucked up inside. The box comes with a super soft, breathable bamboo mattress for baby to sleep on with a fitted sheet. It can be used anywhere around the house and is a great alternative to more conventional sleep spaces.
It’s available in three designs – pink, yellow or blue hearts – and as a stand alone product retails at £75. We were sent the “Treasured Baby Box with Gifts Galore!” and so inside we also received a huge bundle of baby products.
The bundle consists of those products that while not essential, will make a new Mama’s life that little easier.
1 x munchkin kneeling mat perfect for bath time
1 x munchkin nappy changer organiser for the nursery
1 x pack of Lansinoh Hot or cold Breast Therapy nursing pads
1 x Snuffle babe Nasal Aspirator for helping ease blocked up noses
A beautiful hand knitted blanket, hat & booties
1 x pair of Funky Feet Fashions Elephant booties
1 x fold up changing mat – perfect for on the go!
After use, the box can be used as a memory box or to store toys & clothes in. The “Treasured Baby Box with Gifts Galore!” retails at £150 with free postage & packaging. Overall, we think this would make a lovely gift for any expecting Mama.
