Safe Sleep ToolKit
Designed to improve the consistency in safe-sleep communication between infant caregivers and providers. The focus is to provide a Safe Sleep Toolkit for providers to facilitate a consistent safe-sleep message (position, location, and environment) to caregivers of infants. The safe sleep toolkit is intended for use by pediatricians, family medicine physicians, and obstetricians. The focal point of the toolkit is a checklist for caregivers to complete regarding safe sleep. Caregivers are asked to respond to the following:
- How do you lay your baby down to sleep?
- Where does your baby sleep at home?
- Please circle the items that are already in your baby’s sleeping area at home, or that you plan to get for your baby’s sleeping area.
- Have you talked about safe sleep with others who may put your child down to sleep?
