The Safe Sleep Academy was developed by the Cribs for Kids® National Infant Safe Sleep Initiative.
Every year in the United States, more than 3,500 infant deaths occur due to accidental suffocation, asphyxia, or undetermined causes during sleep.
Since 1998, the mission of Cribs for Kids® has been to prevent these deaths by educating parents and caregivers on the importance of practicing safe sleep for their babies and by providing portable cribs to families who, otherwise, cannot afford a safe place for their babies to sleep.
