Safe Sleep

Promoting infant safe sleep practices is a public health priority.

Education is the key to promoting caregiving practices that ensure infants’ well-being. The Safe Sleep Program provided over forty trainings to community partners/parents reaching and educating almost 1,000 people. In collaboration with the Cribs for Kids Program, 530 cribs were distributed while providing safe sleep education to 162 parents. All other families receiving a crib are educated by partnering case managers who provide the education in the clients’ homes. The Model Behavior component of the Safe Sleep Program educated over 400 hospital nurses and other staff on the behaviors they should be modeling while the parents are in the hospital, prior to discharge. To maximize efforts, the Safe Sleep Committee is targeting partnerships in high need areas throughout the county. By mapping which communities in Broward experience the highest numbers of SUIDs, we can prioritize outreach to the community sites that exist in those neighborhoods.
