Infant Safe Sleep

Many factors influence infant mortality, but in Ohio each year more than 15 percent of infant deaths are sleep-related. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Ohio Department of Health recommend that all infants sleep alone, on their backs and in a crib – every time they are placed to sleep – to reduce these unfortunate tragedies. 

OHA's Safe Sleep is Good4Baby is a comprehensive strategy focused on collaboration and community engagement. The Safe Sleep campaign positions hospital health care workers and clinical experts as leaders and advocates for the preferred methods of infant safe sleep.
