As part of our B-FED Program (Babies- Formula, Equipment and Diapers), we are proud to supply our first #BabyBox to new parents to help promote safe sleeping for infants, and to prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)  AECDC is the only Central NJ distributor for the new state-wide program!

Every year 3,500 infants  in the US die from sleep-related incidents, often involving blankets or toys blocking the infants' flow of oxygen. 
 
With a grant from the Center for Disease Control, New Jersey is the first state in the nation to offer these boxes free to all expectant parents.  The Los Angeles-based Baby Box Company makes the sturdy, specially-designed boxes available after new or expectant parents watch a 15 minute video on safe sleeping habits for babies, and pass a 6-item quiz.  Parents are then issued a certificate that they bring to a Baby Box distribution center and pick up the box, which includes a mattress, fitted sheet, diapers and coupons for baby necessities.  The AECDC also can provide baby clothing and other accessories.
 
Baby Boxes can be used for up to 6 months after the baby is born, and then provide additional storage for baby items.  For more information on obtaining a Baby Box in Central NJ, please contact:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
