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.

Please contact your local DHR office for assistance with safe sleep education, services and to pick up a free baby box. It is still encouraged that expectant mothers and families with children up to 3 months learn more about safe sleep through https://www.alabamapublichealth.gov/perinatal/safe-sleep.html.

For more information contact Allison Foster at the Department of Human Resources at Allison.Foster@dhr.alabama.gov 334-353-4825.
