Hello San Francisco mamas and papas!
You are eligible for a free Baby Box if you are a San Francisco resident who is having a baby between October 1, 2016 - November 1, 2017.
We are commencing distribution of free Baby Boxes in San Francisco via a simple 3-step program.
STEP ONE: REGISTER ON BABY BOX UNIVERSITY
The first step is to register on Baby Box University at www.babyboxuniversity.com as a San Francisco resident. Please note that we do not ship directly to your home. We provide safe-sleep Baby Boxes through a network of citywide distribution partners. Our Baby Boxes do come with free products for baby care and development, but the primary purpose of our program is to provide a safe sleep space for all infants regardless of socioeconomic status and to engage as many parents as possible in our supportive community.
Babies typically outgrow the Baby Box at around 6 months of age.
STEP TWO: GET YOUR COMPLETION CERTIFICATE ONCE THE SAN FRANCISCO COURSE IS AVAILABLE ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1
Your local health experts have been working hard to put together the information and activities they feel will best support San Francisco parents. Once you register on www.babyboxuniversity.com with a San Francisco zip code, you will be able to go to the drop down menu on the home page starting on Monday, November 1st and any day thereafter and select the San Francisco Intro to Parenthood 101 Course. This is how it will appear so that you have a visual guide.
CLICK “SIGN UP” IF YOU ARE A FIRST TIME USER OR “LOG IN” IF YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED.
SELECT THE SAN FRANCISCO COURSE FROM THE DROP-DOWN MENU.
FOLLOW THE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS AND COMPLETE THE COURSE.
The San Francisco course will take approximately 10 minutes to complete online and, once finished, you will receive a completion certificate via email. Please keep this email. Alternatively, you may snap a screen shot of your completion certificate as a picture of the certificate will also be accepted by the distribution centers. To find the distribution center closest to you, please go to www.babyboxuniversity.com, click through your Course, and See Quiz Results.
STEP THREE: COLLECT YOUR BABY BOX
Baby Boxes will be available for pick-up in San Francisco starting November 2nd. This means that you should show up at the center closest to you with your completion certificate after November 2nd. As always, we strongly recommend calling your local center in advance to ensure staff and inventory are available during your preferred time.
