The Best Start Program





In the first year of a baby’s life, parents are faced with making vital decisions that will give their child the best start to a healthy life. During this critical time, Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation (RMCHF) is committed to supporting Colorado parents through the Best Start Program. By providing evidence-based resources and education, our aim is to ensure that every newborn in Colorado has a safe place to sleep, can reap the benefits of human milk as their first food and will thrive by building a strong and healthy brain.

RMCHF, in partnership with The Baby Box Co., is passionate about this program and committed to leveraging additional resources through its statewide network of hospitals, clinics and public health and government agencies to ensure accessibility for all expecting and new parents in Colorado.

Learn more about the three components of the Best Start Program:

  • Safe sleep and reducing infant mortality
  • Breastfeeding and human milk as baby’s first food
  • Brain building activities so children can thrive

The dollars that go to RMCHF go directly to patients and their families and that sets this foundation apart from others where fundraising is for the bricks and the mortar and the equipment. It’s really for the families and the patients. -Dr. Steve Leonard
