We provide resources and education on safe sleeping techniques to all new parents, to help reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). We want to ensure that you and your baby have a safe and restful sleep experience.

Sleeping Babies Should Be Safe Babies

Safe Sleeping for New Parents

Navigating the delicate journey of parenthood comes with an array of joys and challenges. Amidst this, ensuring your little one's safety during sleep is paramount. Tragically, each year in the US, over 3,400 infants lose their lives to sleep-related incidents. Most of these heartbreaking losses stem from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), suffocation, or accidental strangulation.

In our shared commitment to safeguarding the well-being of our precious infants, we encourage you to embrace resources available on safe sleeping practices. Whether you're a new parent embarking on this journey for the first time, a seasoned grandparent revisiting this tender stage, or a devoted guardian entrusted with this profound responsibility, staying informed is key.
