Parent Praise of the Baby Box

11742779_947862265271999_417119259017158351_nParents at the Sixteenth Street Community Health Center have some great things to say about Baby Boxes!  Baby Boxes provide a safe place for sleep, opportunities for more interactions with baby, and support to families…

“I know I am not suppose to sleep with my baby but I am so tired and sometimes when I was nursing him I fell asleep and I was scared when I wake up.  It is so much easier to keep this by my bed and touch him while we both fall to sleep.”

This box will make things easier for my children to talk and touch my baby but I know she is safe and I can take this to from the bedroom to the living room.  I told my kids only the baby can be in the box, no toys.”

“I lost my husband during my pregnancy so I need to work and take care of my children on my own.  I am trying to do provide for my children like my husband did but I see them suffer. This beautiful box with things my baby will need made my children and I excited about the baby.  I now have something special for my baby.
