In the United States, 3,500 infants die every year because of sleep-related deaths.  That’s almost 10 healthy babies dying every day.

The National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ) is working to change that statistic.  Interested in hearing what you can do to help more babies sleep safely? Join NICHQ for a free webinar.
