Everybody knows that getting a baby to sleep can be tough. But as kids get older, they often face new challenges when it comes to getting enough sleep.
At least one Wisconsin infant dies every week in an unsafe sleep environment. In order to address this preventable tragedy, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services is piloting an initiative to distribute “Newborn Nests” to parents in need of a safe place for their babies to sleep.
I had the opportunity recently to talk on our Facebook page about safe sleep for babies and answer questions from parents about a wide range of topics, including the ABC’s of safe sleep, crib bumpers and sudden infant death syndrome.
Sleep is a time to rest and replenish. Unfortunately, sleep is often considered a luxury these days, as there are so many activities that disrupt our sleep.
