The Ohio Department of Health (ODH), Bureau of Maternal, Child and Family Health is partnering with Cribs for Kids® and local organizations throughout Ohio to provide Cribettes® and safe sleep education to eligible families (while quantities last). Cribettes® are certified as being compliant with Consumer Product Safety Commission standards; they are safe for all naps and overnight sleep during the first year of an infant's life. The Cribette® is part of a safe sleep kit that also includes a fitted sheet and safe sleep educational materials. In order to receive a kit, eligible families must also receive education provided by their local program. In this session, the parent/caregiver(s) receives important education on infant safe sleep practices and how to properly use the Cribette® for their baby.
The following is a list of ODH-funded programs; interested families should contact their local program for more information.
