Did you know...The Baby Box Program will be changing April 2019?

WOW! Did you know that over 100,000 parents in Canada have been reached through the Baby Box Co. rewards-based education program to date! We have been told that 2019 is going to be a year of massive growth for The Baby Box Co. in Canada. They have bigger plans -- they want to reach even more parents and ensure that parents are supported, and that they have evidence-based information from leading healthcare professionals. In order to ensure that the Baby Box Co. educational program is available for years to come, and to reach more parents than ever before, they have made some modifications to their existing reward. 

 

If you do not know, they offer a rewards-based education program, where parents and expecting parents watch a series of short educational videos designed by leading healthcare professionals, take a quiz, and then are given an ID# to claim a reward. Until now that reward has been a Baby Box. Effective April 1st they will be changing the reward that Canadian parents will receive -- every parent will now receive a beautiful gender-neutral sleep bag! This sleep bag is cream in colour and zippers from the bottom up, to make those nighttime changes quick and easy. They have chosen this reward specifically because it aligns with their safe sleep initiative - no blankets inside of babies sleep space. The sleep bag allows babies to be kept warm, while remaining safe. 

 

CCRR is a local distribution partner for Baby Boxes and will have boxes available until March 31st. If you would still like to receive a Baby Box you have two ways to do it before the end of the month -- you can visit a local community partner site (CCRR), or you can pay a small fee to have it shipped to you directly.

 

The Baby Box Co. looks forward to many more years of supporting Canadian parents in this crazy journey called parenting!
