Upstate Cribs for Kids
Upstate Cribs for Kids is a safe sleep education program by GHS Children’s Hospital Infant Apnea Program and Safe Kids Upstate. The program aims to reduce the number of infant deaths due to unsafe sleep practices. Many families who lack education about safe sleep put their babies at great risk of suffocation, falls, or entrapment. The Cribs for Kids program is bringing safe sleep education, and (if needed) play yards to eligible families who need a safe sleeping environment for their children.
