Safe Sleep Prevents Infant Deaths

THE COUNCIL PARTNERS WITH WESTCHESTER COUNTY IN THE NEW “SAFE SLEEP” CAMPAIGN TO PREVENT INFANT DEATHS

The Council will be spreading the word about the “ABCs of Safe Sleep”, a new campaign launched on October 18th by County Executive Rob Astorino.    About 90 infants die in New York each year from sleep related causes according to the NYS Department of Health.   Westchester’s Child Fatality Review Team found that in the last 8 years, 60% of local infant deaths had an identified unsafe sleeping environment.  The campaign reminds us that the safest way for babies to sleep is ALONE, on their BACKS and in a CRIB.   As a partner in this effort, the Council will be distributing informational resources to child care programs and parents.   Materials will be available in our reception area.
