The PA Safe Sleep program was created specifically to combat sleep-related deaths of infants in Pennsylvania. We cannot stress enough the importance of remembering the ABCs of safe sleep. Babies should always be placed to sleep ALONE, on their BACK and in their own CRIB.
To learn more about safe sleep practices for babies and to find direct resources for other questions, please view the list below. You will also find no cost to download print materials to share or remind you of safe sleep practices.
