    Default Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes?

    Here's the most shared story of BBC:

    BBC News - Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes

    Any thoughts? We had our own and it was great! Too bad our legistelation does not allow Finland to export and sell them abroad.

    I love that the care box includes condoms.

    I saw @prplchknz post about this a few weeks ago in a thread. I think it is awesome, and I really wish we had something like this here in the US.

    I told my mom about it, and she said that she'd love to see in the US maybe even just for the poorest of the poor. She said there's a lot of people who don't need it and they shouldn't be eligble but have it available for the people who do. And the population of the US is so much that we realistically couldn't afford to give them to everyone, unless we raised taxes. and you probably know how hard it is to raise taxes even a cent here.

    In the US, it would probably be seen as government overreach and socialism.

    ^^ not really news, considering every social program suggested in the US is seen as socialism.

    Socialism sucks. Our country is still trying to bounce back from the dark ages of socialism, so I have a huge negative reactivity towards the concept.

    However, socialism within a capitalistic framework is not only ideal, it is necessary for any country. I know very little about American Internal politics, though I might be right in my understanding that they opposite of what I believe. So screw republicans?

    Niezche would have disagreed? If his concepts are put into economic practice it would be anarchic capitalism I think.

    True but I think it's a great thing. Incidentally, my oldest son slept in a laundry basket for the first week or so until I felt ok putting him in his crib.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    me and my brother slept in my mother's crib from the 50s which probably had lead paint and not up to code at all they just made a shit ton of bumpers to protect the sharp parts. my mother said people would probably call CPS now if she did the same thing now. We also have an old bassinet that my mom and her brothers slept in and my mom often lends out to friends who just had their first child and can't really afford anything.
