I partnered with The Baby Box Company for this post but all opinions are entirely my own.
Having a baby is tough. It’s hard to find a credible information you need to prepare for a baby’s arrival.
Parents* can now take advantage of educational parenting programs and get a free Baby Box.
The Baby Box Company strives to equip parents with the education and resources needed to give babies a safe and healthy start in life.
(Note: Boxes are available in: CA, CO, TX, OH, NJ, IA, AL, MN, WI and Canadian provinces except Quebec)
Sadly, my baby boy is too old to sleep in the box (although he had a good time playing in it).
My daughter loved putting her baby doll in the Baby Box. She asked me if we could have another baby. I laughed and told her to keep playing with her doll. Did I mention we are in the midst of teething right now? Enough said, right?
What is a Baby Box?
Baby Boxes are sustainably designed safe sleeping spaces. In Finland, these boxes have famously been used (in conjunction with education) to reduce the infant death rate to less than half of that in the U.S.
These boxes can be used as a safe sleep space for a baby’s first five to six months of life.
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.

It’s more than a ‘box’
The Baby Box Co. is simple to install and comes with helpful samples like diapers, breast milk storage bags and more.
While the Baby Boxes are filled with premium products, the boxes aren’t “magic” on their own.
Parents can also take advantage of The Baby Box University. This online program offers parents and caregivers free access to over 5000+ educational videos by medical experts covering safe sleep, nutrition, pre-natal health, and much more.
I love that there are free resources that help make parenting less stressful.
All Baby Boxes come inscribed with “Every child matters. Every family matters.”
That’s a message I can get behind, can you?
Are you an expecting mom or know someone who is?
Join Baby Box University and receive a free baby box. I am excited to give mine away to a dear friend who is expecting.
