October 2023 SIDS Awareness Month
To help raise awareness about safe infant sleep during Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Awareness Month in October, we’re inviting you to participate in a fun and friendly photo activity: the #SleeplessInNOLA #SafeSleepSnap.
Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles—anyone can participate by sharing a photo of a baby (up to 12 months of age) in a safe sleep environment on their social media accounts. Make sure you use the hashtags #SleeplessInNOLA and #SafeSleepSnap so everyone can see the adorable pictures of babies in safe sleep environments!
(Not sure what a safe sleep environment looks like? Check out this page for details.)
Dr Vyas explains the new guidelines to help newborns sleep safely.
A good night's sleep is just a click away!
