Safe Infant Sleep Social Media Block Party
We celebrated parents, caregivers, health and service providers, and advocates who help babies sleep safely during Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Awareness Month in October.
This celebration featured a live social media event each day from October 26 to October 29. Each event was co-hosted by a different organization, including NICHD/Safe to Sleep®, Charlie’s Kids Foundation, Cribs for Kids®, and First Candle.
- Doctor’s Tips for Breastfeeding Mamas—Let’s Talk About Safe Infant Sleep (co-hosted by NICHD/Safe to Sleep® and Children’s National Hospital)
- Fireside Chat with Dr. Sam—Why Is Practicing Safe Sleep So Hard, and How Dads Can Help (hosted by Charlie’s Kids)
- The First 90 Days—What Every Parent Must Know About Safe Sleep (co-hosted by First Candle, Regal Lager®, and Love to Dream™)
- Caregiver Confidence— Safe Sleep in a Caregiving Setting (hosted by Cribs for Kids®)
