Safe Sleep Campaign

Safe Sleep

AAP Campaign/Toolkits

The leading cause of death for infants 1 month to 1 year is Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUIDs). This includes sleep related deaths and SIDS. Many of us work to make safe infant sleep the norm. To help guide conversations about safe sleep with families, the American Academy of Pediatrics has developed a suite of materials including posters, infographics, videos and social media messages. Please download, share and post these materials. Link to HealthyChildren.org/SafeSleep in your posts.



Suggested hashtag: #SafeSleep

Communications Strategy

In creating materials to use with parents, we knew the way to make useful items that resonate would be to talk to parents themselves. Discover what we learned from parents and grandparents around safe sleep messaging here.
