Native Infant Safe Sleep Workbook

The National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD) Healthy Native Babies Project produced a workbook packet to assist in the communication of safe sleep messages through programs working in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. The packet is one outreach piece the project created in an effort to find effective ways to reach out to American Indian and Alaska Native groups, who have the highest rates of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in the United States.

The packet includes:

  • A workbook that educates readers about the science of SIDS, explores SIDS risk factors and how to change them, and offers ideas for outreach in American Indian and Alaska Native communities
  • A handout featuring images to help explain the risk factors and risk reduction of SIDS
  • A toolkit with outreach materials such as posters and brochures that users can customize for different Tribes and Native regions
