Hello Alberta mamas and papas!
You are eligible for a free Baby Box if you are an Alberta resident who is having a baby between October 1, 2016 - October 1, 2017.
This is the 2016-2017 Ontario Baby Box pattern.
We are commencing distribution of free Baby Boxes via a simple 3-step program.
STEP ONE: REGISTER ON BABY BOX UNIVERSITY
The first step is to register on Baby Box University at www.babyboxuniversity.com as an Alberta resident. Please note that we do not ship directly to your home. We provide safe-sleep Baby Boxes through a network of provincial distribution partners. Our Baby Boxes comply with Health Canada's bassinet standard. Our Baby Boxes do come with free products for baby care and development, but the primary purpose of our program is to provide a safe sleep space for all infants regardless of socioeconomic status and to engage as many parents as possible in our supportive community.
Babies typically outgrow the Baby Box at around 6 months of age.
STEP TWO: GET YOUR COMPLETION CERTIFICATE
Your local health experts have been working hard to put together the information and activities they feel will best support Alberta parents. Once you register on www.babyboxuniversity.com with an Alberta zip code, please go to the drop down menu on the home page and selected the Alberta syllabus. This is how it will appear so that you have a visual guide.
CLICK “SIGN UP” IF YOU ARE A FIRST TIME USER OR “LOG IN” IF YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED.
The Alberta syllabus will take approximately 10 minutes to complete online and, once finished, you will receive a completion certificate via email. Please keep this email. Alternatively, you may snap a screen shot of your completion certificate as a picture of the certificate will also be accepted by the distribution centers. To find the distribution center closest to you, please go to http://distributor.babyboxco.com/distribution-centers/alberta
STEP THREE: COLLECT YOUR BABY BOX
Baby Boxes will be available for pick-up in Alberta starting the week of October 30th. This means that you should show up at the center closest to you with your completion certificate on or after October 30th. As always, we recommend calling your local center in advance to ensure staff is available during your preferred time.
