LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 07, 2018
The Baby Box Co., a California-based company that provides free products and parenting education from trusted experts to help destress the parenting journey, today launches its free California statewide program. By completing online courses, all families across the state will receive a free parenting package which includes: online education from reputable, trusted educators, curated products and Baby Boxes which function as a safe sleep space. The Baby Box Co. program has already positively impacted families across nine other U.S. states and five countries, with over 250,000 free baby boxes distributed across the U.S., U.K. and Canada. For the first time, the company is debuting the “Baby Box Truck Tour,” a pop-up experience offering families a live a snapshot of the education and experts featured online at babyboxco.com/california.
A recent report showed that 58% of Millennial parents found the amount of parenting information available to be overwhelming and in turn, unhelpful. While many parents scour the internet and turn to friends and loved ones to find answers to pressing parenting concerns and advice on helpful products, they’re often left feeling unsupported and overwhelmed.
“The tradition of baby boxes comes from Finland and is based on the idea that every child deserves an equal start in life,” said Jennifer Clary, Founder of The Baby Box Co. “We were inspired to adapt this wonderful program for the United States and other countries to support parents with access to high-quality, free education and products that will help them best protect their children and make them feel more empowered.”
How All California Parents Can Join
All California parents are eligible to receive a Baby Box, certified to meet the highest level of safety standards by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which includes a mattress and is intended to be used as a safe sleep space for a child’s first months of life. The box also includes a curated sample of essential parenting and baby products such as baby wipes, brain boosting activity cards, personal care products, nursing pads, feminine care products, onesies, a waterproof tote bag and more.
It only takes three simples steps for California parents to receive free Baby Box and products:
Go to babyboxco.com/california and register for free as a California resident. Be sure to include your correct contact information, including mailing address.
Watch the the California course.
After taking a short quiz, parents receive a certificate of completion and then select local pick-up or direct delivery of your Baby Box.
The Baby Box Co. is a place where parents can find relief, comfort and confidence in finding trusted products and information they need in their earliest years of parenthood. Healthcare experts and educators work alongside The Baby Box Co. team to cover topics that can cause stress and anxiety for a parent throughout the first few years of their child’s life. The Baby Box Co.’s courses include videos such as: how to have a healthy pregnancy, breastfeeding guidance, postpartum depression awareness and resources, tips on boosting your baby’s brain development and much more.
“We consistently see that new parents are overjoyed and excited but also anxious as they enter parenthood,” said Nicole Samii, MD, Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. “We are proud to share the Baby Box Co. program with our maternity and pediatric patients so they know they can leave the hospital aware that they have on-demand guidance and resources to help reduce the anxiety all parents face as they learn to care for their children.”
