Infant Mortality Awareness 2012

September is Infant Mortality Awareness Month and the Hamilton County Health Department is providing information on the ABC's of infant sleeping

Babies should sleep Alone on their Back in a Crib.  For infants from birth to one year old the crib should not have blankets, toys, bumper pads, or bottles.  Instead of blankets the infant should be dressed warmly and laid directly on the back with a pacifier. Infants should never sleep with their parents in their parent's bed.
