Same Room Different Beds Campaign
Infant Deaths Are Preventable
Each year, 30 infants die from sleep-related deaths in Philadelphia. Most of these deaths happen when an infant is put to sleep in a way that is comfortable for an adult, but dangerous for a baby. These infant deaths are preventable. The goal of the Health Department's Same Room, Different Beds Campaign is to help parents, families and caretakers keep their babies safe at naptime and bedtime.
Sleep-related deaths are not from neglect. Some families bring their baby into their adult bed or couch to feel safer. But sadly, bringing a baby into an adult bed or couch may result in death.
