Infant Safe Sleep

The Infant Safe Sleep program provides safe sleep workshops, Pack-n-Plays, and client support materials to residents of Kalamazoo County. Workshops are offered twice a month and Pack-n-Plays are distributed based on need. Call 269-373-5308 for more details.

Follow these tips for safe sleep during every nap and night-time routine:

  • Place your baby on their back, in a crib, bassinet or pack-n-play for every sleep time.
  • Use a firm mattress with a tightly fitted sheet.
  • Keep baby’s sleep space clutter free – no pillows, blankets or toys.
  • Avoid covering baby’s head or overheating.  Instead of a blanket, consider using a sleep sack, wearable blanket or footed sleeper to keep baby warm.
  • Remind everyone who cares for your baby, including babysitters and family members, how to keep baby safe while sleeping. 

Additional resources and information for Infant Safe Sleep practices can be found on the MCH Resource page.
