SIDS, Suffocation and Co-Sleeping Dangers

Expert Advice on Your Baby's Safe Sleep

Unintentional suffocation is the leading cause of injury-related death among children less than 1 year old. Unsafe sleep environments for infants are the primary cause of infant suffocation.

We have hosted Dyann Daley twice at our church to share about the prevention of child maltreatment. We have connected with a high-risk apartment complex and will be handing out Safe Sleeping pamphlets from Cook at the Fall Festival we are putting on for them. Thank you for raising awareness so we can protect our kids!
