“Back to Sleep” Campaign Update
Since we announced the “Back to Sleep” Campaign in January, we have been working hard to put together all of the details to share with our volunteers. We hope you will consider helping us with this project! For those of you who have not heard about this project yet, we’ve included the details below. If you already know all about this campaign, scroll down a bit for the new details!
What is the “Back to Sleep” Campaign?
As a part of the UIHC, NICUs “Back to Sleep” Campaign, we are providing them with blanket sleepers. These sleepers are designed to help babies transition from the NICU to their new, home environment and to reinforce safe sleeping practices. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends placing babies on their backs to sleep, while wearing a blanket sleeper, instead of using loose swaddling blankets to decrease the incidence of (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) SIDS.
