Safe to Sleep


This year in Maternal Child Adolescent Health (MCAH), 
we are focusing on promoting safe sleep for babies! By following safe sleep practices, your baby is at a lower risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) which is the leading  cause of death in infants 1 month to 1 year old.


Ways to be sure your baby is sleeping safely are:

    A: Baby sleeps in the room where you sleep, but not in your bed

    B: Place your baby on his or her back to sleep, for both naps and at night

    C: Use a firm sleep surface, such as crib, covered by a fitted sheet

    D&E: Remove all loose bedding, crib bumpers, stuffed animals & toys
