Sleep Baby Safe

The relationship between unsafe sleeping practices and unexplained infant deaths has become clear, so much so that Health Canada has issued new guidelines and resources to promote the safest way for infants to sleep.  Highland Shores Children’s Aid has an increased focus on safe-sleeping practices and strongly believes in the preventative nature of programs like the Sleep Safe Baby Program. Just as we would no longer transport children in a car without car seats and seatbelts, or allow our children to bike without helmets, we need to ensure that when children are put to bed at night they are not at risk.

Just as many of the families that we work with cannot afford recreational opportunities for their kids, neither can they afford the costs of cribs and crib mattresses for their infants. As a result, babies sleep on couches, adult beds, or in other inappropriate and unsafe sleeping arrangements.

In order to maintain the integrity of the family unit, the HSCA will provide a family, in an emergency situation, with a crib and mattress if resources allow; however funding is not readily available for such purchases.
