Safe Sleep and National Breastfeeding Month

Infant mortality continues to be a public health crisis in the United States, and that means, simply that too many babies die before their first birthday. But change is possible, and there are ways to reach every mother and every child to ensure that all babies get the chance to celebrate their first birthday. In recognition of Infant Mortality Awareness Month, we’re sharing steps that everyone can take to save babies’ lives.

Make Every Sleep a Safe Sleep

Every year, thousands of babies die from sleep-related causes. That’s why it’s vital that health professionals talk to families about recommended practices and empower all caregivers as safe sleep champions. This interactive handout supports those conversations. Families can also access the handout at home and use it to teach their friends and families about safe sleep.
