THE BABY BOX
The Baby Box Co., inspired by a Finnish tradition, is an innovative, integrated program equipping parents with education and resources to give their babies a safe start in life. Baby Boxes can be used as a safe sleep space for a baby's first five to six months of life.
Our Baby Boxes, made from durable cardboard, are proactively certified to meet all applicable tenets of the safety standards for bassinets set by the Consumer Product Safety Commision (CPSC), ASTM International (a global standards organization), as well as Health Canada and European Union (EN) Standard regulations. The Baby Box Co. further champions infant safety by emphasizing natural, predominantly organic products which includes none of the following: PBDE flame retardants, ozone depleters (CFCs), formaldehyde, prohibited phthalates, mercury, lead or heavy metals. The mattresses are firm foam pads which have been independently certified as non-toxic and safe by CertiPUR-US laboratories.
THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION
While parents love our Baby Boxes filled with premium products, the boxes aren’t “magic” on their own. We believe it is the education and close communication with local healthcare providers through Baby Box University which is at the center our program.
We partner with hospitals, government agencies and nonprofit organizations across the globe to distribute free Baby Boxes and customize our online education by working with regional doctors and educators to craft community-centric courses.
One of our main goals is educating parents on safe sleep practices in an effort to help reduce SIDS. We believe the education component of our initiative is equally, if not more, important as providing physical resources to improve overall child health care outcomes.
Baby Box University offers video content, guides and tutorials such as brain development activities, breastfeeding resources, early father engagement tips and much more, to empower parents with broader knowledge on how to best care for their infants.
