Safe Sleep for Babies Town Hall Teleconference – Call In

Tuesday, January 16, 2018
11:00 a.m. 12 noon (PST)

Join CDC subject matter experts and other public health professionals for a town hall teleconference.

Analyzing recent data, the Centers for Disease Control found that parents continue to practice unsafe habits that have been associated with sleep-related infant deaths, for instance:

  • 1 in 5 mothers says she places her baby to sleep on his or her side or stomach.
  • 2 in 5 leave loose bedding and soft objects in the baby’s sleep area, most often bumper pads and thick blankets.
  • 3 in 5 sometimes share their bed with their baby.

These practices contribute to about 3,500 sleep-related deaths of U.S. babies every year, according to the CDC.
