Baby Box Program Giveaway for New Parents

About This Event

  • Event Type:Parenting/Birthing Classes
Details:

Boulder Community Health is pleased to partner with Rocky Mountain Children's Health Foundation (RMCHF) to provide new and expecting parents a free Baby Box and educational materials to promote safe sleep and help prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Baby boxes, or durable cardboard bassinets, provide a safe-certified, convenient, additional place for babies up to six months of age to sleep or relax while under parental supervision.

To enhance children's health in our community, BCH and RMCHF are hosting a Best Start Program Drive-Thru community event at Foothills Hospital in Boulder to gift new parents a free baby box on Saturday, October 21.

To reserve your free baby box BEFORE the event, you must sign up here and complete a short online video education course.

On Oct. 21, parents can simply pull into the Foothills Hospital parking lot, follow signs, show us your course certificate, and drive off with your new baby box!

Decorated with a cute Colorado theme, the Baby Boxes contain a firm mattress with waterproof cover and sheet, education materials on safe sleep, breastfeeding, and brain-building activities, and a goodie bag with useful items like diapers.

The boxes are a 75+-year tradition in Finland, where the government provides one to every expectant mom and they are believed to contribute to one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
