The Indiana State Department of Health has established partnerships with agencies in the State of Indiana to provide safe sleep education and Infant Survival Kits (one infant portable crib, fitted sheet with safe sleep message imprinted on it, wearable blanket, pacifier and safe sleep recommendations) for families who do not have safe places for their infants to sleep. As part of the program, we will provide a number of educational materials that will help caregivers learn more about safe sleep. Our educational messages focus on three key risk reduction recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and National Institutes of Health: that infants sleep safest alone, on their backs and in a separate, safe sleep environment.
If you are in need of a safe place for an infant to sleep, please contact MOMS Helpline at 1-844-MCH-MOMS (1-844-624-6667).
