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.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.
Socialism at work.
I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.
Read about this the other day. Wish the United States would follow suit.
we also used to birth babies in the sauna because it was warm, and largely more sterile than anywhere else in the house.
Wow - they got it right
It is dangerous to be [a] human.
all faces are made of skin and bones but some are considered attractive and some aren’t and that’s weird to think about
Paintings are just colours on a canvas, but some of them are beautiful and some are not. Yet an ugly painting can be good too, if it has a strong message, a meaningul story, or if it evokes feelings.
And sometimes, even ugly meaningless paintings get attention, because this is a strange world. And some people really love postmodernism.
do you ever get so emotional and you just
Why is this gif so accurate
Its accurate, but I want to know how that happened….
Here is how it works: The container is filled with steam, and then sealed. When the steam cools and condenses, it no longer takes so much space, which means that the pressure inside will go down. As a result, the pressure inside will end up being lower than the air pressure outside. Finally, when the pressure is low enough, the container can no longer stand it and crumbles.
When you think about it, this might make this even more accurate. Maybe.
