Safe Sleep Promising Practices and Literature Review

These two resources can support state and community efforts to eliminate sleep-related infant deaths.

  • Literature Review of Evidence-Based and Evidence-Informed Safe Sleep Practices: The review examines literature and analyses of current evidence-based safe sleep practice guidelines, policies and initiatives that provide health care provider training and modeling; increase infant caregiver knowledge and education; and promote safe sleep polices at the local, state and federal level.
  • Promising Practices for Safe Sleep: This resource identifies state and national emerging and promising practices to promote safe sleep in states and communities. 

Both resources were developed in collaboration with the Missouri Safe Sleep Coalition to inform the Missouri Safe Sleep Strategic Plan.
