GMAG is working on an important video to educate families about unsafe sleeping practices. We have partnered with ICAN Associates and First 5 LA to raise awareness about the dangers of sleeping with infants or placing them in a crowded crib. The statistics are sobering. Did you know that a baby dies from suffocation once a week in Los Angeles County, often while sleeping with family members? It’s a tragic accident that is completely preventable. Here are some important tips to remember to keep your babies safe:
1. Share a room with your baby, not a bed
2. Place your baby on its back, ALONE in a crib
3. Give your baby space to breath–no pillows, blankets, toys or bumper pads.
We hope our video opens eyes and saves lives, so families DON’T WAKE UP TO A TRAGEDY.
