Safe Infant Sleep Social Media Block Party

Image of baby sleeping on their back with the text, “watch and share videos from experts on safe infant sleep.”

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.
