Safer Sleep Week 2022

Published: 09 March 2022 to 31 December 2098

This year, Safer Sleep Week takes place on 14 – 20 March.

This is an annual awareness event ran by The Lullaby Trust, to raise awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and to equip parents with information on how the can reduce the risk.

The Lullaby Trust shares our mission to stop all unexpected deaths of babies and young children, which is why we are supporting this awareness event and creating our own campaign.

This year, we are working with our partner organisations across Hull and the East Riding to showcase a local angle, presenting statistics and guidance that directly impacts those in our communities.

As part of this, we will focus on the theme of out of routine sleeping, covering topics such as how parents can best prepare a safe sleeping space for their baby when going to new locations or when simply trying something different.

Throughout the week, we will share social media posts with daily themes, advice and support for parents, and we will circulate national resources supplied by the Lullaby Trust. This includes posters, booklets and website links, enabling parents to stay up to date with the latest guidance.

By the end of the week, it’s our goal that we will have shared useful information and helpful tips that are easy to remember, and therefore easy to apply no matter what scenario a parent may find themselves in, so that all families can move forwards knowing that they’re well-equipped with the knowledge to keep their babies safe when sleeping.
