What is the mattress made of?

All of our mattresses are firm foam pads which have been independently certified as non-toxic and safe by CertiPUR-US laboratories. Specifically, they adhere to the following:

- No PBDE flame retardants

- No prohibited phthalates

- No ozone depleters (CFCs)

- No mercury, lead or heavy metals

- No formaldehyde

We are dedicated to providing babies with a safe sleeping environment!

How long will the baby be able to use the Baby Box?

It depends on how quickly your baby grows, but most babies are comfortable in their Baby Box until 8 months of age. We recommend that babies cease using their Baby Box as a primary sleep space once they can pull themselves up independently. Once they have gotten too big, the Baby Box is perfect for storing toys or as a keepsake chest.

How do most parents use the Baby Box?

Most parents use their Baby Box as a safe spot for baby to sleep at night. These parents generally keep their box right next to their bed.

Other parents use the Baby Box as a place for baby to relax or nap during the day; they often keep the Baby Box in the kitchen or living room and use it (somewhat like a playpen) while they are in that room. Baby can rest safely while mom and dad are busy cooking, folding laundry, taking care of other kids, and so on. Once baby is too big for the box, it can be re-purposed as a storage box for toys or all of those tiny onesies that no longer fit!

How do you choose the products that you include in your Baby Boxes?

We are obsessed with finding nothing but the very best baby products! We've spent countless hours pouring through all the research and vetting hundreds of products, so we know exactly what babies love and need the most. In addition to our own experience with children, we are also constantly asking moms for feedback and suggestions. If you’re a mom with something to say, we’d love to hear your thoughts! Please email us at

Are there any special warnings for the Baby Box?

We ask that you exercise common sense caution. This includes keeping the Baby Box away from open flame, not getting it wet, and never using the lid while baby is inside. The lid is for storage purposes only. In addition, please do not transport the Baby Box while the baby is inside if any tripping hazards are present in the room (stairs, toys, rugs, etc...) and never lift the Baby Box with baby inside once he or she exceeds 15 lbs. Always keep the Baby Box on the floor or on a study wide surface such as a coffee table. Setting the Baby Box on a narrow and/or unsturdy surface presents a falling hazard.

How are Baby Boxes different than Pack n' Plays and Pepi-Pods?

Many organizations are in the process of switching from Pepi-Pods and Pack n’ Plays to Baby Boxes. Naturally, one of the primary factors is cost. Baby Boxes wholesale for less than 50% of the cost of Pepi-Pods and Pack n’ Plays, thereby allowing non-profits, hospitals, governments, and other institutions to reach double the number of new parents without increasing their program budgets. An extended reach = more lives saved and that is a huge factor in the ever increasing rise of Baby Boxes’ popularity.

In terms of Pack n’ Plays, groups which have been moving away from the Cribs to Kids program in coordination with Graco in favor of Baby Boxes have done so due to the following recurring complaints about Pack 'n Plays:

(1) Pack 'n Plays are difficult to set up, and they can in fact be dangerous if they have not been set up correctly. Baby Boxes are distributed to new parents pre-assembled, so this is not a concern for institutions with a Baby Box program as opposed to a Pack n’ Play program.

(2) Pack 'n Plays are a hassle to transport, which is especially an issue for itinerant families that frequently move from place to place. The Pack 'n Play has to be disassembled and then re-assembled each time it is moved, which is a huge hassle. When a family with a Baby Box is moving from one location to another, they simply fill it with baby's items, using it as a convenient caddy.

(3) Pack 'n Plays take up a large amount of space. Many of the low-income families who receive our Baby Boxes through outreach programs live in small apartments or shared spaces, so the Pack 'n Play takes up far too much space to be practical. The Baby Box is nice and compact, just the right size to hold a baby without taking up unnecessary extra space.

(4) The Pack 'n Play mattress is not very comfortable; if baby can't sleep due to discomfort, parents are more likely to bring their baby into bed with them. The Baby Box mattress is much more comfortable and designed to prevent against discomfort, reducing the likelihood of dangerous co-sleeping incidents.

(5) Pack 'n Plays are not sustainable. Once Baby Boxes have been outgrown, on the other hand, they are re-purposed as storage or toy boxes, and they can even be recycled at the end of their life span, making them the more sustainable choice. For this reason, our company was nominated for Natural Child World's 2014 Eco Excellence Awards.

In terms of Pepi-Pods, while we would certainly advocate their benefits for reducing infant mortality over Pack n’ Plays, there are several key reasons why Baby Boxes are a stronger choice for outreach programs:

1) Pepi-Pods are made of plastic, which is not optimal for babies and bad for the environment.

2) Babies outgrow Pepi-Pods at approximately 5 months of age whereas Baby Boxes serve as a primary sleep space for little ones until approximately 8 months of age. As taken directly from the Change for Our Children website: “Twenty percent of sudden infant deaths are of babies aged 5 months or more; an age when most babies have outgrown a Pepi-Pod.” Baby Boxes address that additional 20% of infants, and that is significant.

3) Pepi-Pods are not the best option for all babies, as Change for Our Children’s website states, they are designed for babies who are more vulnerable, “being born before 37 weeks or weighing less than 2500 grams”. With 39+ weeks being the typical gestation period, it is optimal for Baby Boxes to be implemented in an outreach effort since they are equally effective for premature infants and full term babies, thereby removing exclusivity from the program’s equation.

Our company has served thousands of parents via Baby Box direct sales and community programs. We have an Advisory Board with sound experience, we actively facilitate infant safety research, and outreach is a cornerstone of our business model. We love what we do and we look forward to collaborations which enable us to distribution life saving Baby Boxes to as many families in need as possible. Please email for more information and thank you for visiting!
