October is Safe Sleep Awareness Month

Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles—anyone can participate by sharing a photo of a baby in a safe sleep area on their social media accounts with the hashtag #SafeSleepSnap.

Here are the specifics:

  1. Post a photo of your baby, grandbaby, niece, or nephew in or next to a safe sleep area on your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
  2. Use the hashtag #SafeSleepSnap in the post.
  3. Give yourself a pat on the back for taking part in #SafeSleepSnap and helping raise awareness about safe infant sleep.

Be creative! Use humor in the photos and captions, as long as you follow safe sleep recommendations. (Not sure what a safe sleep area looks like? Check out our Safe Sleep page for details.)
