Safe Sleep For Your Baby
The Oklahoma State Department of Health is committed to reducing infant deaths in Oklahoma.
The leading causes of death in babies from one month to 12 months are sleep-related infant deaths, including Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), accidental suffocation, and strangulation in bed. A safe sleep environment can reduce the risk of all sleep-related infant deaths.
African American babies are more than two times as likely to die of SIDS as white babies. American Indian/Alaskan Native babies are nearly three times as likely to die of SIDS as white babies.
- Suffocating when another person fell asleep with the baby and laid on top of the baby
