Claim your free Baby Box

What are Baby Boxes? 

Inspired by the maternity packages that the Finnish government sends to all expectant mothers, Baby Boxes are new baby starter kits that double as safe sleep spaces for infants.  Each box includes a custom mattress with a fitted sheet so that it can be used as a bassinet.

What is Baby Box University?

Parenting education goes hand-in-hand with Baby Box distribution.  BabyBoxUniversity.com provides parents with universal access to current educational resources.

How do I claim my free Baby Box? 

In order to receive your Baby Box after you deliver, you must register online, complete the online education, and either print out, take a screen shot or take a photo of your Baby Box University certificate. You will also receive an email from The Baby Box Co. upon passing the quiz with your CERTIFICATE ID.  You can use this email and ID to claim your Baby Box.

We strongly recommend that you complete the online program prior to arriving at the hospital to deliver.  By completing the program in advance, you will spend less time on the computer and more time bonding with your baby!
