Safe Sleep in the NICU and Beyond

Jill Beck is joined by Gail Bagwell, NANN President and editor of NANN’s Newborn Safe Sleep Guideline, to discuss safe sleep. Jill and Gail start by clarifying the difference between sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) before diving into the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations for safe sleep. NICU nurses are instrumental in role modeling and educating parents on safe sleep. Listen in to learn how you can advocate for safe sleep environments in the hospital and after discharge.

Check out NANN’s Newborn Safe Sleep Guideline on www.nann.org/store, the only clinical practice guideline that addresses the challenges of implementing safe sleep practices in the hospital setting, and includes recommendations on how to do so effectively for children 1-month and 1-year of age.
