Safe Sleep

Safe sleep A B C's


B = on their BACK

C = in their CRIB

The Indiana State Department of Health has established partnerships with agencies in the State of Indiana to provide safe sleep education and Infant Survival Kits for parents and caregivers in Indiana who do not have a safe place for their infants to sleep.  Our educational messages focus on three key risk-reduction recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and National Institutes of Health which states that infants sleep safest:

  • Alone
  • On their backs
  • In a separate, safe sleep environment

On average, at least one child dies each week in Indiana as a result of bed-sharing or sleeping in an unsafe environment.

Do you need a safe place for your baby to sleep?
