Spread the Word on Wednesday About Infant Safe Sleep

November 4, 2019

 

In 2018, 13 Baltimore babies died while sleeping. These tragedies are preventable. B’more for Healthy Babies needs your help to spread the word about infant safe sleep.

 

As more and more people turn to social media for health information, we are up against rampant misinformation, but we can continue to use our collective voices to reach as many families as possible with evidence-based safe sleep information.

 

This Wednesday, November 6, please help infant safe sleep trend on social media by posting about safe sleep to our social media channels.
 

Attached is B’more for Healthy Babies’ updated SLEEP SAFE social media toolkit.

The toolkit features sample text, graphics, and videos that you can take directly, or use as inspiration for your own social media posts. Just remember to use #NotOneMoreBaltimore and #SLEEPSAFE for your safe sleep messages and to direct followers to Baltimore’s safe sleep landing page: update.healthy babies baltimore.com.

 

In addition, please visit B’more for Healthy Babies’ Facebook page on the following dates for special messaging (the page administrator will tag our organization in these posts as well):

 

● November 17: Prematurity Awareness Day

● November 20: Making a safe sleep plan for travel and/or a relative taking care of your baby
