Selecting a baby box for your baby

Baby boxes are also known as sleep boxes. These are simple cardboard boxes which can be used in place of cribs for babies to sleep in.

Following points can be considered while selecting a baby box for your baby:


  1. The box should be spacious and sturdy, basically appropriate for your baby.
  2. The material should be able to stand your baby’s weight.
  3. Baby Boxes can be used until 6 months or till your baby learns to sit or crawl on their own. So buy the boxes keeping in mind your baby’s growth for six months at least.
  4. Ensure the base is well balanced.
  5. Check whether it is comfortable for you and your baby to use a baby box. Generally, babies feel safe, secure and happy in the baby box.
  6. The bottom mattress should be firm and properly fitted.
