Welcome Baby Box

The Welcome Baby Box is the South Lane community’s flagship strategy to support the 90by30 initiative to reduce child abuse and neglect by 90% by the year 2030.

 

The Smitten Safe Sleep System is designed to provide a safe sleeping environment for infants 0 to 6 months of age. It is a portable bassinet that is light and easy to carry from room to room to keep the infant close. Inside the Safe Sleep System box, families will find thoughtfully curated safety and care items for both baby and parents. Each box will also contain a resource guide detailing local and county resources for the family.

 

The 90by30 South Lane Regional Leadership Team performed extensive mapping of local resources to determine the gaps in service for families and children in our communities. The Welcome Baby box is a direct strategy outlined in the South Lane Child Abuse Prevention Plan that addresses support needed by our local families with new babies.
