READING TIME: < 1 min.

It’s not a fun topic to talk about, but very much needed when you’re a parent.

October is SIDS Awareness Month. A safe sleep environment can help reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and other sleep-related causes of infant death, like suffocation.

As a Pediatric Sleep Specialist and Family Coach, safe sleep is the #1 priority for my clients all year round, but I always want to get the message out there during this important awareness month. 

I’ve created this handy info-graphic of the American Association of Pediatrics Safe Sleep Guidelines that is great to take a screenshot of and save.

Making sure your child has a safe sleep environment is the best thing you can do to reduce your risk for a sleep-related incident.

Hilliary grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, but has lived in many places across the U.S., settling in Dallas in 2018 with her husband and (now) two sons. She is a Certified Pediatric Sleep Specialist and Family Coach, and owner of Tranquil Beginnings. Prior to this, she spent much of her professional career working to improve the lives of children and families, utilizing her education in psychology, social work, and nonprofit management and fundraising to provide care for children, support little ones with developmental disabilities, teach trauma informed yoga and mindfulness to youth who have suffered Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and raise money for healthcare systems and mid-sized nonprofits. When she isn't changing families' lives through her work, she can be found enjoying the city's kid-friendly activities, working her way through Dallas' culinary scene, exploring the outdoors, practicing yoga, and enjoying live music!
