About Safe Sleeping:
SIDS and Kids Safe Sleeping is an evidence-based health promotion campaign developed for health professionals, childcare workers, new and expectant mothers, parents and anyone who cares for babies and infants.The campaign has been developed in conjunction with researchers from Australasia and internationally and provides information about the evidence around sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) risk reduction and fatal sleeping accidents.
Since its inception in the early 1990s, the campaign has reduced the incidence of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy by 80% saving 8,480 babies’ lives. Vigilance is still required in delivering our Safe Sleeping message to the broad community as sadly the cause of sudden infant death syndrome remains unknown with more research into the cause still needed.
A variety of booklets, brochures and articles are available for download on our website or you can order copies of Safe Sleeping, Tummy Time, Safe Wrapping and Cot-to-Bed Safety brochures and posters from the Health Promotions team by completing the order form below.
