Tuutu Baby Box

Bringing Finnish Baby Boxes to Australian Parents

In Finland, the government provides a Baby Box to all parents, which includes everything they initially need for a newborn baby.

The Baby Box concept in Finland dates back to 1938.

It was written into law in 1949 as a maternity entitlement. Baby Boxes are not dependant on the social or economic circumstances of the parents. A box is given to all mothers to be, provided they visit a doctor or pre-natal clinic before their fourth pregnancy month.

Today, Finland’s maternity package is a cultural institution.

Over the years the contents of the box have aligned with the changing needs of parents and society in general. One thing that hasn’t changed is how the box transforms into a baby crib where the newborn sleeps in the first months after birth.

Two Australian Finnish mothers created Australia’s original baby box company, Tuutu Baby Boxes.

Tuutu Baby Boxes are a sustainable, organic and eco-friendly sleeping space with everything you need to welcome your baby home. Made in Australia from Australian cardboard, the packaging and accessories are carefully selected to ensure your baby benefits from natural and organic products. All products are gender neutral and suitable for boys and girls.

When your baby outgrows their Tuutu, use the box for storage.

Babies feel safe and comfortable in the box, because it’s small and they are surrounded by the box walls. It is said that it resembles the time that they were still in the womb. At around three months old, your baby will outgrow the box and they are excellent for storage.

As a socially conscious company, Tuutu donate boxes to vulnerable families.

There are lots of mothers who would benefit from a Tuutu Baby Box to help them on their journey through motherhood. Every box Tuutu sells, allows them to donate more.
