In order to receive baby items, parents are required to attend a "Baby Shower" class,
where you will learn a great deal of valuable information,
on infant safety,
in the last 60 days of your pregnancy.
(You may take this class, until baby reaches the age of six months.
Our layettes are sized 0-6 months)
We serve WA and ID low income families,
up to age 6 months.
(For help with older kids please visit our local resources page for local agencies.)
"Babies are especially vulnerable during the first few months of their lives. Being able to provide their baby with a safe bed and basic necessities increases the self-esteem of new mothers in need and makes for happier, more confident moms and dads."
*Baskets for Babies serves low income families in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. Need a safe bed for your baby? contact your local Cribs for Kids partner

Why Baskets for Babies?
~We are 100% volunteer.
~Low income families attend a FREE BABY SHOWER, and receive almost everything
they need to bring new baby home.
~We teach new parents about SHAKEN BABY SYNDROME: and offer local resources to
-Shaken Baby syndrome is the leading cause of physical child abuse deaths in the
-1300 cases in the US each year- 80% suffer life long disabilities, and 20% die.
~Many families cannot afford a safe bed for baby. We offer safe beds on a loaner basis.
~We teach SAFE SLEEP: We teach about SIDS and educate our new parents on how to
avoid accidental suffocation and strangulation.
-In 2017, there were about 1,400 deaths due to SIDS, about 1,300 deaths due to
unknown causes, and about 900 deaths due to accidental suffocation and
strangulation in bed.
~ In the event of a death, we offer support, referral to local resources, and memory
boxes through our Heaven Sent program.
~We teach RECALL AWARENESS: Most of our families buy or receive used items, Many
of these items are recalled, or do not meet the current safety standards. We want our
parents to be educated on these items, to make the safest choices for their children.
