Swedish children's car seat manufacturer, Axkid, is dedicated to innovation and safety. The company has substantial experience in developing and manufacturing rear-facing car seats, and champions extended rearward facing for longer.
Founded in Gothenburg in 2009, Swedish safety and attention to detail is built into the DNA of all of Axkid's products. They're passionate about children continuing to travel rear-facing through their weaning journey and beyond, as it is proven to be up to 5 times safer than forward-facing travel.
Much like the weaning process, Axkid aims to encourage fun and safe exploration. Travel can further expand your little one's horizons, but with improved standards and greater awareness, Axkid hope to achieve this in a way that saves lives and keeps them both happy and safe.

It all began on a flight to New Zealand. Ever tried changing a newborn on a plane – mission impossible right? This challenge sparked an idea for friends Dannielle and Monique for the world’s first portable all in one change system, the essential baby box. And so b.box was born. And yes, b.box stands for baby box.
Fast forward 10 years and our founders have turned their clever concept into a global brand known for its innovation, quality and creativity in product design. Today, b.box is one of the fastest growing and most successful Australian companies in the juvenile products industry. You can find b.box in over 2,000 stores in Australia, from major retail chains and gift stores, to baby specialty and pharmacy. b.box is also sold in over 40 countries around the world.
We encourage our people to think differently and challenge the status quo. All our products are approved by kids and we listen to what our customers want, involving kids, parents and our distributors in our design process.

“Weaning week is so important as it gives new and existing parents impart advice and support on how to wean and feed your baby. There is a lot of advice and support on bring up babies in general but not one that is wholly devoted to weaning and eating, such a key part of a child’s development. It’s a wonderful opportunity for people to see our brand and also for to engage with the public to see what their issues and needs are and how we can help them now and in the future.” Fiona Brown, Director, Bibetta Limited

Together, we support Weaning Week's ethos, that weaning a child as nutritiously as possible, and involving children in the preparation of mealtimes leads to a less fussy eater and healthier lifestyle later on.”

The Food Safety Mum

“As you start thinking about the exciting new world of weaning, it’s important not to forget that babies and young children don’t have the same immune system as us adults (or even older children) so we need to make sure we’re extra careful with their little tummies. Since becoming a Mum to my little girl Mia, and another one on the way, I understand first hand how much things change when you have a little one to think about too! I'm so excited to be part of Weaning Week 2021 to help give parents some top tips on how they can make sure the food they are serving their little ones is safe!” Jenna Brown, The Food Safety Mum
