Approximately 3,500 infants die annually in the United States from sleep-related deaths, including sudden unexpected infant death (SIDS), ill-defined deaths and accidental suffocation and strangulation. The Baby Box Co. has developed Baby Boxes made from a durable cardboard that can be used as a baby’s bed for the first few months of life. Baby Boxes have been extensively tested for water resistance, air flow, flammability, and durability as well as standard bassinet structural compliances.
The Baby Box contents include:
- Waterproof mattress protector
- Fitted sheet
- Vroom brain-building activity cards from The Bezos Family Foundation
- Pampers baby wipes
- Pampers Swaddlers diapers
- Lansinoh breast pads and nipple cream
- Baby lotion
- Waterproof diaper tote bag
To receive the quality care products that the Baby Box offers, families are required to complete the Texas Syllabus at Baby Box University before receiving the Baby Box. The localized content through Baby Box University provides valuable, trustworthy information to new and expecting parents about a range of topics including safe sleep, pre-natal nutrition, infant nutrition, what to expect during pregnancy and more. By combining the Baby Box itself with the educational course, the initiative helps decrease the infant mortality rate through increased parental engagement.
