Babies Need Boxes - Iowa

There are babies in Iowa who don't have a safe place to sleep. There are parents who don't fully understand safe sleeping practices and safe infant care. We can change that. We HAVE to change that. Education, resources, supplies and safety all in one box. In the spring of 2015 in Des Moines there were three infant deaths in the span of four days. The deaths were attributed to unsafe sleeping conditions such as accidental suffocation due to co sleeping. It was following these events that the idea for a local Baby Box Program was born.
