I partnered with Baby Box for this post but all opinions are entirely my own.
Having a baby was the most overwhelming experience I’ve ever had in my life. Between the physical changes and the emotions, plus trying to figure out how to actually take care of another little person, it can feel like too much.
When you ask your friends, they all have opinions about everything from nap time to breastfeeding. Of course, all of their opinions are different! There were many times when I left a conversation where I asked for advice about my baby feeling more confused than when the conversation started.
You don’t want to get me started on Google.
There are no less than a million websites and blogs with information about taking care of a baby. Who even knows where to begin?
Meet The Baby Box Company
The Baby Box Company officially launched in California in March. They are committed to help parents make sure their babies have a healthy start. The company offers easy to follow education programs through their Baby Box University that gives moms and dads information they need without having to sift through all of the extra stuff.
I don’t know about y’all, but when I’m postpartum, my attention span is shot. I need the information that I need in a concise and clear way. There isn’t a lot of space for interpretation in my brain when I’m trying to make sure my little human’s needs are being cared for. Baby Box University has a variety of educational videos on baby care that are straight to the point.
The instructors are professionals—pediatricians, physicians, and doulas. The information that’s presented in Baby Box University is well vetted and reliable. As I went through the course, watching videos on topics like postpartum depression, breastfeeding, and vaccinations, I thought about all of the first time moms who need this.
Even though we know that people have babies all of the time, when you’re taking care of your first child, it’s a lot. First time parents need all of the support that they can get.
The Baby Box Company also sends out baby boxes in partnership with their education programs. I remember reading about these boxes a few years ago. Baby boxes have been used to reduce the infant death rate to less than half of what it is in the U.S. in Finland. They do that by offering a safe space for babies to sleep, and educating parents on healthy baby sleep habits.

I like using the baby box for naps with my sweet boy. It’s much safer than putting him on the couch where he can roll off. Putting him down to sleep in the box is more convenient than taking him upstairs in his crib. Even though this is my second baby, I appreciated the confidence the course gave me in knowing what to do with this little guy to keep him happy and healthy. I can’t wait to tell all of my pregnant friends about The Baby Box Company, and empower them with a tool that will help them to be better moms to their sweet babies!
