Central New Jersey Moms Receive Baby Boxes to Curb Infant Mortality Rates

Parenting is a long-term investment plan for a family. For every parent, the core objective of parenting is ensuring that the child is not only safe but protected from hard. The roles of a parent border providing a healthy and safe environment for children. One of the first alarming scares of infant’s life is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome abbreviated as SIDS. With the rising rates of sudden death syndrome in infants, the New Jersey Moms are excited for the cardboard boxes program that is set to reduce the number of children who lose their lives through the unexplained condition.

 

Baby Boxes

 

New Jersey moms have on the limelight thanks to their progress in initiating a project that will cut down the numbers of SIDS across the town. The team in charge of the project is sending every new parent home not only with a new baby but also a new cardboard box. The cardboard box has a fitting mattress and is to be the sleeping compartment for the babies on the first days of delivery. The main aim of the project is to foster healthy sleeping positions and environments for babies as a newborn is prone to infections as well as diseases during the first days. The boxes also reduce sleep complications that may arise in the absence of the parents.

 

Conclusion

 

Instead of using a basinet, these boxes can be used. They are readily accessible to mothers of Central New Jersey who have registered online with the program. Not only are the parents awarded with the boxes but also with additional gifts like baby wipes as well as onesies. The roots of these boxes trace back to Finland years ago when the government invested in the program with the aim of reducing the baby mortality rate. Initially, the boxes were offered to low income earning families. Currently, every family with a newborn is entitled to the baby box.
