Your Questions Answered
When is my baby too big for a baby box?
Your baby’s height must be under 26 3/4 inches in order for them to be able to use the baby box (this usually occurs around the six month mark). If your baby can sit themselves up, they are also too big to use the baby box.
Why shouldn’t I choose to have my baby box direct-delivered?
You may experience long delays in delivery, and we have partners who may be able to deliver your baby box if you have no means of transportation. Our partners can also help answer any additional questions you may have and connect you with other resources.

Giving Birth At Aurora Sinai Medical Center or Aurora Women’s Pavilion in West Allis?
These two hospitals have their own baby box program, not part of our Milwaukee Universal Baby Box program. Please do not complete the Milwaukee Course or schedule a time to receive a baby box from one of our partners, since you are eligible for an Aurora baby box if giving birth at either of these two hospitals. Please note: Aurora baby boxes are only available at two Aurora locations (Aurora Sinai Medical Center and Aurora Women’s Pavilion in West Allis). More information on Aurora’s baby box program can be found here.
