Sleep like a baby...
How about having a beautiful carton for every baby born in Finland to sleep?
This is part of the famous Finnish baby box.
Starter Kit for parents.
This box is a gift from the state for all expectant mothers, filled with clothes, bedding and other useful things, including condoms.
Finnish people are so practical!
It also includes a security
The recognized mattress that meets the carton makes it a crib.
The tradition was established in 1938 to helpincome parents.
In 1949, the program was extended to all expectant mothers, provided they had a prenatal health check-up.
The contents of the box have changed over the years, but the plan is still strong.
Baby cases were introduced in Scotland in 2017.
Like the Finnish version, the box itself is advertised as a safe and comfortable place for babies to sleep.
Ireland is currently piloting a similar plan.
Today, most recipients of baby boxes also have a crib.
Many have also invested in changing tables (skipping the furniture at the expense of the back) and possibly feeding chairs. It all adds up.
A recent survey by Gaia Baby, an Irish nursery furniture company, found that nearly three (32 pc) prospective parents spent more than 1,000 euros in their child\'s nursery.
Furniture is the biggest purchase.
No doubt, three
Quarter of first quarter (74 pc)
When parents buy new furniture for their nursery, one is the same --in-
Parents of more than one child 5 (19 pc ).
\"Normally, it\'s grandparents,\" says Joanne O\'Grady.
The founder of Gaia baby
\"One set of grandparents may buy the furniture for the nursery and the other for the stroller.
The problem is that all these bits and pieces you buy are because you need them, but you only need six months. . .
I want to create a crib that\'s a little smart.
So you only buy one thing.
\"Gaia Baby, a multi-Field Company, is like this.
Functional conservation furniture was born.
O\'Grady, in partnership with her business partner, Carl milgil, designed the complete sleep system of Gaia Selena (€ 6, 99 ). 90).
This is a crib that can be converted into a toddler bed and then into a bed suitable for children under the age of five.
This is not the first convertible to go public.
Other options include Denmark-
Design Leander baby crib-
Beds (799 euro for small Dreamers) and Austin 2-in-
1 crib (299 euro for Harvey Norman), both changed from crib to child bed.
The difference between the Gaia system is that you can also purchase a version (849 euros ).

The sleepers are a wonderful invention.
They are a piece of furniture that is fixed on the parent\'s bed, providing a safe sleeping space for the baby.
It\'s not the best thing to bring babies into bed and treat them as hot water bottles (thankfully I\'m alive to tell the story ).
But it\'s tiring to sit in a chair and eat at night. A co-
The sleeper allows you to feed your baby in bed and then transfer them to your own space before falling asleep.
The range also includes rocking/feeding chairs (€ 45 ).

This chair is designed to have more elbow space than regular rocking chairs and bulletproof chairs
Tip device so you can stand up without your arms.
\"The other thing we noticed is that parents are very tight in space,\" O\'Grady explained . \".
\"Especially they live in Dublin.
\"The accepted wisdom is that it is safest to sleep in the same room with a newborn baby for at least the first six months.
\"When people have little room for their own beds, they worry about where they will put their baby cots.
\"So the complete sleep system for Gaia Selena includes a mini sleep systemcot setting.
Alternatively, you can wait until the Irish baby box system goes live.
In addition, according to the Gaia baby survey, almost half of respondents (45 pc) admitted that they identified the child\'s gender in advance so that they could plan the color scheme for the nursery.
But interior designer Lisa Marconi, who designed the new series for the launch, believes that Ireland needs to go beyond the decoration of the gender nursery. \"Stay neutral! \" she says.
\"Behind us, the days of the pink baby and the blue baby nursery have passed.
Yellow, gray and green are all bright colors used to paint the walls of the kindergarten.
\"Even from a practical point of view, I am totally in favor of neutral design, but we have a lot of customers who are interested in pink nursery or blue nursery, said interior designer Arlene McIntyre.
She has just teamed up with Irish model Vogue Williams to launch a new nursery series Baby Ventura.
The series was designed for Williams\'s son Theodore, but it\'s a gender --
Combination of neutral suits, safari-
Green theme and accessories.
The Vogue crib is handmade in Ireland with clear Lucite sticks so that you can see your child and draw boards of any color, and three adjustable mattress levels that can change as the baby grows.
It is equipped with an optional table top to convert the crib into a replaceable table.
Custom Design is not cheap, of course.
Crib (infant bed) price prescribed separately;
Sofa beds in the same range are priced at EUR 1,400.
But imagine how extravagant it is to have an interior designer take over the renovation of the nursery.
Not everyone is energetic and energetic during pregnancy.
\"We are designing from conception to completion,\" McIntyre said . \".
\"This is a big advantage for people looking forward to babies.
