BBC_Cloths_1024x1024_917ecc78-dd9e-421d-b3c2-66126921fe9e_large   The baby box had sent me a organic wash and burp cloth kit to review. There are 5 cloths in each set. There natural cloths are 100 percent organic cotton fleece and has detailed contrast stitching on the edges for a colorful finish. The baby box company is committed to creating natural products that are optimal for infant comfort and safety. When I received the cloths the first thing I did was wash them. You can tell quality wash clothes when you wash them and they stay soft and don't start falling apart. These cloths did not shrink, get fuzzy or fall apart. Yes, they still were soft. Who wants to wipe their child with a hard wash cloth? These are very soft and very gentle on your child's skin. Tradition For 75 years, Finland's expectant mothers have been given a box by the state that serves as a starter kit for their new baby. It contains clothes, blankets, and other newborn necessities, and the box itself–which is lined with a mattress–can even be used as the child's first bed. It is believed that these baby boxes have helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates. The tradition dates back to 1938. In the 1930s, Finland was a poor country and infant mortality was high, but the figures improved rapidly in the decades that followed. The contents of the box have changed a good deal over the years, reflecting changing times. During the '30s and '40s, it contained fabric because mothers were accustomed to making the baby's clothes, but the fabric was replaced by ready-made clothes in the '50s. BBC_Cloths_2_large The box is credited with helping to decrease Finland's infant mortality rate from 65 deaths for each 1,000 children born in 1938 to 3 deaths per 1,000 births in 2013. It has become an established part of the Finnish rite of passage towards motherhood, uniting generations of women and contributing to Finland's ranking as one of the best countries in the world for mothers to live.
