In 2012, First 5 LA partnered with ICAN Associates for a two-year, $1.5 million Infant Safe Sleeping Campaign to save families from the preventable loss of their infants due to unsafe sleeping practices. During the first year of this partnership, ICAN Associates and First 5 LA worked together to develop a campaign message for professionals and families to increase awareness on the topic of infant safe sleeping.

The Child Abuse Councils partnered with the “Safe Sleep for Baby Campaign” to spread awareness about infant safe sleeping. This will include informing professionals and families on the importance of safe sleeping practices through the use of campaign and training materials available online and in the Safe Sleep for Baby Training Toolkit.
