A recent BC Coroner's Service Alert highlighted an increase in Infant Deaths due to unsafe sleep practice. In the previous 3 years, there have been an average of 18 related infant deaths per year. Six of these baby deaths occurred on Vancouver Island. We want to reduce our baby’s risk of SIDS.
For over 75 years, Finland’s baby boxes have helped their country achieve one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world. And now, the tradition has come to Canada. The plan is that the Baby Bed Project will continue after this initial implementation. Your donations will ensure its continued success. Let’s give babies their best chance! You can designate your donation to this project.
Baby Boxes are new parent starter kits that contain quality infant products as well as important information about continuing care and support programs for both mother and child.
Each Baby Box is outfitted with a custom, certified non-toxic mattress so that it can be used safely as a bassinet.
