Georgia Safe to Sleep Campaign Materials
The goal of Georgia’s Safe to Sleep campaigns is to educate mothers, fathers, grandparents and caregivers about the importance of putting babies to sleep following the ABCs of Safe Sleep as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Georgia has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the country. Infant sleep-related deaths occur suddenly, but parents and caregivers can reduce the risk of these tragic deaths by following the ABCs of safe sleep.
Alone – babies should sleep alone in their own sleep space, close to but separate from their caregiver.
Back – babies should be placed on their back to sleep. Every nap. Every sleep. Every time.
Crib – babies should sleep in a crib or bassinet with a firm, flat surface with no extra items such as crib bumpers, blankets or toys.
