the baby box co. story

As Mom-trepreneur Michelle Vick focused on her new baby’s health and safety, she struggled to figure out what information to trust. She knew she couldn’t be the only one struggling, and she wanted to do something to help all parents get the advice and support they needed. So she and her best friend Jennifer Clary teamed up with healthcare organizations to create a trustworthy source of expert parenting information: The Baby Box Co.

education with rewards

We’ve worked with our advisory team of healthcare experts to develop video courses that help parents safely care for their kids. Each person who completes a course receives a Baby Box for safe sleep. This concept of education with rewards has been a big hit with parents, and we’ve given out over 250,000 Baby Boxes in the U.S., U.K. and Canada. As we continue to expand our educational topics, our courses and rewards will always remain free and available to everyone.
