Learn the ABCs of Safe Sleep

Share Your Room, Not Your Bed.

The safest place for your baby is alone in their own sleeping space in the same room with a parent or caregiver. Their sleeping space should be free of other people, pets, blankets, toys, bumpers, and other soft objects.

On their Back. Every Time.

For every sleep, place your baby on their back before your child is 1 year of age. Even as your baby grows and learns to roll, starting sleep on their back is best.

Test your safe sleep knowledge and earn a free sleep sack. A sleep sack, also known as a wearable blanket, protects your baby by replacing loose blankets in the crib that could cover your baby’s face and restrict breathing. We currently can only send sleep sacks to Arizona residents.
