Baby Boxes vs. Moses Baskets

Baby boxes are gaining popularity in the United States, after wide spread use in Finland.  The boxes are believed to be one of the reasons why Finland has such a low rate of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.   

Some regulatory agencies advise caution, as discussed in this article from the NY Times - Put Your Baby In A Box - Some Experts Advise Caution.  

While we do not know about Baby Boxes, we do know about Moses Baskets.   Moses Baskets are stylish, comfortable, more durable than a cardboard box and adaptable for after the baby outgrows the basket.  Our customers tell us Moses Baskets make perfect gifts. For your next baby shower, fill a basket with essentials - the new parents will be grateful.      

Which do you prefer?  A box or a Moses Basket?

Best Playmat Trick!

If you intend for your playmat to stay in one place, as opposed to taking it apart each time you use it, here is a great trick!  

Assemble the playmat and tape the seams of the back side - turn it right side up.  Packing tape or duct tape can be used to keep the pieces together.  This avoids any potential shifting.

If you are using the playmats in a higher traffic area or have an especially active toddler, having the playmat pieces affixed to each other can be useful.  Businesses who use the playmats should definitely try this.
