    The lack of airflow would freak me out!

    That's awesome! Obviously airflow isn't a problem since the infant mortality rate has dropped

    That's lovely
    Interesting to read about the changes over time; used to be fabric so mums could make their own baby clothes, and the transition from cloth to disposable and back to cloth nappies, and bottles now being left out again.
    I love Scandinavia

    Instead we just give a big hunk of cash...
    Maybe the babies here are sleeping in the cardboard box the plasma came in? Lol

    I read this earlier this evening and I thought it was a brilliant idea. Can't believe all our well paid politicians can come up with is to throw a whole heap of cash at expectant parents- this is such a wonderful 'out of the box' (pardon the pun) solution!
