Yes, we all know that bringing a baby home for the first time is a joyous occasion. But with all honesty, however, it’s also a time of adjustment, restless nights, and stress. While many are now practicing safety when caring for their little ones — there’s still a fine line where new parents find themselves unaware of SIDS or also known as Sudden Infant Death. In many cases, the situation is preventable, especially when it’s related to safe sleeping. That’s where the baby box comes in!
It’s more than just a box – it’s a global movement to give every baby a safe, healthy and fair start in life.
So what exactly is a Baby Box? It’s just like the name is implying – a cardboard box that acts as a bassinet in place of an expensive crib. My husband’s initial reaction was typical (and what I expect most parents would say), “why would I want to put my baby in a box?”. As absurd as it might seem, it offers babies a safe place to sleep plus a whole lot more! Every baby box comes stuffed with an infant mattress/bed (meeting bassinet safety standards), along with essential infant care products, such as diapers, wipes, onesies, and samples.
As of January 2017, New Jersey became the very first U.S. state to launch a “baby box” program for all new and expecting mothers to lower infant mortality rates. Read on to learn more about the box and how you can avail one for yourself or even for a loved one to help prepare for their upcoming baby. Even if you’re not from New Jersey, you can still get a box and have free access to over thousands of educational videos provided by medical experts to learn more about safe sleeping, nutrition, health, and so much more.
