Who We Are

Sleep Safe Baby is an Infant Safe Sleep Public Education and Awareness Campaign funded by First 5 Fresno County. Our focus is on the first 5 years of life. At First 5 Fresno County, we believe that children thrive when their families thrive. Because when children and communities are healthy, loved, and nurtured, we all thrive.

Our hope with Sleep Safe Baby is to shift cultural norms and everyday sleep practices to reduce SIDS in Fresno.

Our Mission

Sleep Safe Baby is committed to ending the tragedies that occur annually in our communities due to accidental suffocation of infants sleeping in unsafe conditions.

Our mission is to share a message of hope and encouragement while spreading important information about SIDS and always being respectful of everyone’s family decisions.
