Ever since I founded Sleep Happy in 2015, I have had a desire to give back to parents of little ones. That is why I am so excited about our month of supporting the non-profit organization, Babies Need Boxes, this April. Babies Need Boxes distributes baby boxes filled with essential childcare products. The boxes themselves are safe sleep spaces for infants up to 6 months.
Throughout the month of April, 20% of all Sleep Happy sales will be donated to Babies Need Boxes. That means that each phone consultation scheduled, Sleep Happy Club Membership dues paid, 10-day consultations package booked, or Pillow Bar purchase made through Sleep Happy in April, will benefit this wonderful organization.
The idea of babies sleeping in cardboard boxes actually has a long-standing tradition in Finland. For over 80 years, Finland has handed out boxes for safe sleeping filled with newborn essentials to all new parents. The founder of Babies Need Boxes, Danielle Selassi from Minnesota, was inspired to create the non-profit organization after hearing about Finland’s cardboard box program. Danielle’s goal was similar: to provide safe sleep solutions and newborn essentials to all families, regardless of socioeconomic status.
Supporting a child’s start to life with education, support, and safety are core values for us here at Sleep Happy Consulting. Equipping parents with safe sleep options and education from the very start of their parenting journey creates confidence in parents. I am so excited to have found this movement and to be supporting Danielle’s mission this year. The goals of her nonprofit aligns with the Sleep Happy mission:
To be a source of knowledge and empowerment for parents; equipping them with the confidence and tools to teach their children to become happy sleepers.
After earning my BS in Child Development and Family Relationships, my first job out of college was with Early Childhood Intervention. Early Childhood Intervention focuses on serving the birth to 3 population with developmental delays and their families in the home. My work as a case manager, sitting on floors with parents and little ones, is where my heart grew for educating and empowering families. Supporting Babies Needs Boxes is a great way to get real solutions to support parents into the homes.
