Staff and public help promote Safer Sleep campaign

We went round the wards at Royal Preston Hospital last week, where staff and members of the public were only too happy to help Lancashire Teaching Hospitals raise awareness of the Lullaby Trust’s Safer Sleep 2024 campaign, and sudden death syndrome amongst babies.

Armed with a camera and our Safer Sleep advice cards, we went to Ante-Natal, where Daniela Tartaglione, Lewis O’Reilly and Ansam Jackson helped spread the message, and then Maternity A and B added to the cause with their own videos.

On Neo-Natal, Cian, Lottie and baby Murphy recorded a special message, while Rebecca, Paul and baby Finlay also backed the campaign, along with staff from Children’s Urgent Care and Children’s Ward.

Safer Sleep Week is The Lullaby Trust’s national awareness campaign targeting anyone looking after a young baby. It aims to raise awareness of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and the simple advice that reduces the risk of it occurring.

Sadly, around three babies a week still die from SIDS and if all parents were aware of the safer sleep advice many lives could be saved.

The theme for Safer Sleep Week is the safest place. During the campaign, the Lullaby Trust will show parents and carers the simplest way to create a safe sleep space for their baby that will help to protect their vulnerable airways and reduce the risk of SIDS and accidents. 

Put baby on their BACK for every sleep 
Keep them SMOKE FREE day and night
