Every baby should sleep safely
Community Health Plan of Washington’s (CHPW) Baby Bassinet Box Program helps you keep your newborn safe while they sleep and is offered to all our pregnant members.
The program has two parts:
- Education on safe sleep habits for infants
- A free Baby Bassinet Box, which is full of essential baby care products including safe bedding
About the Baby Box
The Baby Box comes with a mattress and fitted sheet, providing a safe place for babies to sleep for their first six months. Our program also shows parents a short Safe Sleep video, which demonstrates habits that reduce sleep-related death in infants.
The Box also comes with products to help you care for your baby:
- Diaper bag
- Baby clothes
- Baby wipes
- Get your Baby Box
Most Community Health Centers have boxes on hand. Our members can get a box during a visit with a maternity nurse in their third trimester. The nurse will show you how to safely use the box and show you a short Safe Sleep video. Then you get to take your box home.
