Safe Sleep

I would urge colleagues when they see infants in the first few months of life to always discuss safe sleep which is the number one cause of mortality in infants. A simple message can be added to standard ‘Smartphrases’ for every infant seen with reflux, colic and formula intolerance.

A terrific website that focuses on this crucial issue: Charlieskids.org; it has videos, do’s and don’ts as well as a link to Cribs for Kids (discounted safe crib website). In addition,this website has a book called “Sleep Baby Safe and Snug” which incorporates updated recommendations on safe sleep practices.

Here are some screenshots from CHOA’s twitter feed on this topic.
