In October, Cradle Cincinnati and our partners are highlighting safe sleep through a number of initiatives:

  • Through a new partnership with the Hamilton County Public Library, we’ll be distributing safe sleep book marks to all families with babies.
  • Safe sleep billboards will be popping up in neighborhoods where the risk of sleep related infant deaths has historically been the greatest.
  • New radio commercials promoting safe sleep will be on the air.
  • Partnering with First Ladies for Health, we will be demonstrating safe sleep practices at more than 20 churches on October 9th.
  • Greater Cincinnati Waterworks will be sending safe sleep flyers with this quarter’s water bills.
  • Kroger will share safe sleep messaging in the baby food and diaper aisles at 10 local stores.
  • We’ll be sharing local families’ successful (and safe) nightly sleep routines via social media. Join us with #safesleepABCs
