Because of copyright limitations, the Safe to Sleep® logo is not available by itself for general use.
However, the logo is available upon request as part of the following web-ready badges and printable icons.
The badges (each 216 × 288 pixels) are a convenient way to link to the Safe to Sleep® website from your digital channels, while the printable icon can be sized as needed for hard copy materials.
Complete the Badge/Icon Request Form (PDF, 69 KB) and submit it to the NICHD Information Resource Center by email (NICHDInformationResourceCenter@mail.nih.gov) or by fax (1-866-760-5947). Once your request is received, the NICHD Information Resource Center will contact you about your request. If your request is approved, you will receive the graphic file in an appropriate format as well as any linking or coding information.
Web Content for Syndication
The Safe to Sleep® campaign offers a free and easy way to add accurate, up-to-date information on safe infant sleep and SIDS directly to your website. Syndication pulls Safe to Sleep® content into your website’s existing look and feel and updates the content automatically if any changes are made to the source information.
Because the content and graphics are developed by the federal government, they are in the public domain, meaning you can use these items without needing permission so.
Here’s how to get the syndicated content:
- Create a free account at the HHS Syndication Storefront.
- Sign in, browse, and choose your NIH health topics.
- Search “Safe to Sleep” to find syndicated pages from the campaign.
- Add the code snippet to your site—the information on your site will update automatically when we update our page.
