Onondaga County Child Fatality Review Team launches campaign to educate dads on safe sleep for babies
"During the last eight years, 40 infants—more than a kindergarten class—have died in Onondaga County due to an unsafe sleep environment.... To help spread and solidify the message locally that babies should sleep in their cribs alone, the Onondaga County Child Fatality Review Team...launched a new campaign this month to educate one part of the community that sometimes doesn’t get the attention it deserves: dads. ‘Safe Sleep Syracuse – Just for Men,’ (www.facebook.com/SafeSleepSYR) is a new local Facebook page that will offer advice, education and stories about safe sleep environments, geared toward men."
