Safe and Sound: New Directions in Promoting Safe Infant Sleep

Infant sleep location continues to be controversial. Health authorities recommend that babies sleep on separate surfaces, but the majority of families sleep with their babies at least part of the time. Health care providers are often trapped between what they are allowed to say to parents and what parents are actually doing. This conference seeks to help health care providers deal with these competing demands and provides practical suggestions on what they can say to parents.

This is a two-day conference.
