Apart from these polls, we distributed 40 “Black Fathers Matter” & “The ABC’s of Safe Sleep” brochures. Encouragingly, 12 fathers showed keen interest and signed up for safe sleep classes with the mother. Furthermore, we had the pleasure of giving out 10 onesies to dads awaiting their newborns and another 2 to fathers with young infants.
Engaging with our community during the “Black Fatherhood Takeover” was both eye-opening and rewarding. The feedback and interactions showed us that while there’s a genuine interest in keeping children safe, there’s still much work to be done in educating and raising awareness. It was heartening to see the eagerness of fathers wanting to learn more and their appreciation for the resources provided.
As Sleep Safe Baby continues its mission, we are reminded that every conversation, every event, and every brochure handed out brings us one step closer to a community where every infant sleeps safely. Together, we can make a difference.
