Safe Sleep Resources for Child-Care Providers

Millions of babies across the country attend child-care, which makes child-care providers invaluable allies for championing infant safe sleep. Child-care providers can make sure that all babies in their care sleep in a safe environment and they can help share guidelines and recommended practices with the families they serve. These two resources can help empower child-care providers as safe sleep champions: 

  • Safe Sleep in Child-Care Settings: Recommendations for Reducing the Risk of Sudden Infant Death
    This handout is designed to empower child-care providers to always protect children in their care by creating a safe sleep environment and spread the Safe Sleep message among the families they serve. 
  • Safe Sleep Infographic for Child-Care Providers
    This infographic provides six simple tips for keeping babies sleep when sleeping. 

These resources were developed as part of the National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration Improvement and Innovation Network (NAPPSS-IIN).
