Sleep baby safe

Why safe sleep matters

  • Each year, more than 3,000 U.S. infants die suddenly and unexpectedly. Many of these deaths occur in an unsafe sleep environment.
  • In 2013, 55 Wisconsin infants died in an unsafe sleep environment. View report.
  • In 2013-14, 33 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties experienced at least 1 sleep-related death. View map.
  • Since the implementation of the Back-to-Sleep campaign in 1992, there has been a 50 percent reduction in sudden, unexplained infant deaths.

Partners

The Alliance is partnering with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), Maternal and Child Health Title V program to develop tools that support tribal and local health departments in addressing infant safe sleep. These tools are intended to enhance local efforts to promote a consistent, clear and concise message on infant safe sleep. These tools also will enhance conversations and education with families. These tools follow the American Academy of Pediatrics 2011 Policy Statement on Infant Safe Sleep.
