Baby Safe Sleep guidelines
February 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
New guidelines about safe sleep were released by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Some of the most important messages are that a baby should sleep alone, on his/her back, on a firm mattress with no pillows, blankets, stuffed animals or fluffy bumpers in the area.
We know that a baby’s death is difficult to think about and no parent imagines it will happen to them. Families need to see that this can happen to anybody but, by adopting safe sleep habits, we can dramatically reduce the number of deaths.
