Safe Sleep Promotion Campaign
Access to and use of a safe sleep environment is key to reducing sleep related deaths.
Remember the ABC’s of Safe Sleep: Babies should sleep Alone, on their Back, and in a Crib.
In 2011, 108 Tennessee babies died as result of suffocation, strangulation or entrapment while sleeping. That equals 5 kindergarten classes full of children who did not live to see their first birthday or their first day of kindergarten.
Safe Sleep Floor Talkers are adhesive floor or wall decals that promote the ABCs of safe sleep. The following agencies have partnered with IRIS to display the floor talkers at their facilities. All Hamilton County WIC Clinics, Cigna, UNUM. If your agency would like to display a floor talker, please contact our department.
