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.
