The Baby Box Celebrates 10,000 Vaccinations After First Year
As they mark one year in business with the launch of a new Spring/Summer range; Irish company The Baby Box are celebrating the milestone of vaccinating 10,000 children in the developing world; through their partnership with UNICEF.
Designed as a complete new-born baby gift package; Baby Boxes are full of essential and luxury items for babies in their first nine months, and are the perfect gift to help new Moms, Dads and Infants get off to the best possible start.
Based on Finnish tradition, the box itself is designed to be baby’s first crib, conforming to top international standards for crib safety. The simple, effective design of the box, coupled with its firm mattress; helps promote safe sleeping as recommended by the American Academy of Paediatrics, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. In fact, research in Finland has shown that since the introduction of Baby Boxes in the 1930s, infant mortality rates have reduced significantly from being the highest in Europe to the fifth lowest in the world.

Coinciding with its first year in business, The Baby Box is celebrating the milestone of vaccinating 10,000 children in the developing world in partnership with UNICEF. For every Baby Box sold, 10 children have been vaccinated from measles, polio and tetanus: 3 potentially fatal diseases, that unfortunately are still prevalent in countries around the globe.
Speaking about the milestone, James Fox, Founder of The Baby Box commented: “I established my business with the aim of providing children with the best possible start in life. In order to facilitate that goal, I partnered with UNICEF to provide vaccinations for vulnerable new-born babies in the poorest parts of the world. I am proud to have reached the significant milestone of vaccinating 10,000 children and hope to see this number grow significantly over the coming year.”
We at eumom would like to wish The Baby Box a Happy First Birthday. We look forward to many more years!
