Baby Box Initiative

On March 29, 2017, Alabama became the third state in the nation to launch the Baby Box safe sleep program. The Department of Human Resources is the lead agency offering a Baby Box to all expecting and new parents in the state.

The goal of the Baby Box program is to provide parents the education and resources needed to ensure a safe sleep environment for their infant.

Expectant mothers and families with children up to 3 months old can go online to www.babyboxuniversity.com to complete the 30-45 minute educational course and the short quiz . A certificate number will be issued. This number can be taken to any DHR office in the state to receive a free baby box.
