Babies Sleep Safest on Their Backs: A Resource Kit to Reduce the Risk for SIDS in African American Communities (Includes Training Guides, 10 Brochures, 10 Doorhangers, 5 Magnets)



PDF
This kit is part of the Safe to Sleep campaign (formerly the Back to Sleep campaign), an effort to educate families and caregivers about putting healthy babies on their backs to sleep, to help reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). In 2000, the NICHD and its partners in Safe to Sleep worked with national African American organizations to design materials and messages about SIDS for African American families and communities, including this kit and its contents. This kit provides background information, resources, and materials for conducting community outreach about ways parents and caregivers can reduce the risks of SIDS and provide a safe sleep environment for infants. The training materials contain correct information even though they were created prior to the release of the October 2005 American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations. The educational materials in the kit (brochures, etc.) include the 2005 recommendations.
