In the Last 6 Weeks, 6 Babies Died While Sleeping

In 2018, there were 13 babies who died while sleeping in Baltimore City. Though 2019 has just begun, there are already 3 sleep-related infant deaths this year. Of these deaths, 6 alone have occurred in the last 6 weeks. We need your help to save our babies' lives.

All of these babies were in an unsafe sleep environment.  As we remember these families, we can each do our part to prevent another such tragic loss. 

Here are ways you can help:

Share our flyer in English (left) or in Spanish, which features an urgent safe sleep message, with parents and caregivers

Show our safe sleep videos and keep on the lookout for an updated version coming soon

Order safe sleep rack cards, posters, and DVDs using our online order form

Post messages about safe sleep on social media using #NotOneMoreBaltimore. For sample messages and graphics, you can use our SAFE SLEEP Social Media Kit

Refer families who need a safe place for their baby to sleep to our free portable crib program. To learn more, call HealthCare Access Maryland at 410-649-0500.

Together, we can make sure all of Baltimore's children are born healthy and grow and thrive in healthy families.
