Safer Sleep Week

A hospital trust has been supporting:- 'Safer Sleep Week'  which is aimed at preventing cot deaths.  Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden and unexplained death of a baby where no cause is found.  Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Trust and other locations throughout the UK have given out leaflets and advice to visitors promoting safer sleep for babies.  While SIDS is rare, it can still happen and there are steps parents can take to help reduce the chance of this tragedy occurring. 'Safer Sleep Week' is The Lullaby Trust's national awareness campaign targeting anyone looking after a young baby.  The event ran from 14 March to 20 March 2016 and The Lullaby Trust and partners hope that is has increased parents knowledge about the importance of safer sleep. They also hope that it has made more people aware of how to reduce the chance of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).  For more information about safer sleep, visit:- LullaByTrust.Org.UK/Safer-Sleep.
