Safe sleeping campaign launched in Northamptonshire

Safe-Sleeping-baby

Northampton General Hospital is supporting the launch of a new campaign aimed at preventing avoidable deaths of newborn and small babies.

The Safe Sleeping campaign is spearheaded by the Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB) in response to a rise in the number of sudden unexplained infant deaths linked to unsafe sleep environments in the county.

Nationally over 300 babies a year die suddenly and unexpectedly in circumstances that involve co-sleeping with a parent or carer - and Northamptonshire is above the national average.
