Safe Sleep for Infants

PUBLIC HEALTH EDUCATION CAMPAIGN | Sudden Infant Death Prevention Education

Is your Baby a Safe Sleeper?

To meet Connecticut legislation requiring hospitals to educate parents and guardians of newborns about best practices for a safe sleep environment, CSG worked with a public-private collaborative which included Connecticut state agencies – the Office of Early Childhood, Department of Children and Families, Department of Public Health, Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, Office of the Child Advocate; Casey Family Programs, Connecticut Hospital Association, Day Kimball Hospital and Yale New Haven Health Systems.

We developed an education campaign to address a multitude of critical issues including: To dispel cultural and historical myths about safe sleep practices and environments to equip parents with accurate data and specific behaviors to ensure the health and safety of their infant.
