Cribs for Kids Program

About the Program

The City of Milwaukee Health Department became an official Cribs for Kids® site in May 2009.  Our Cribs for Kids® program provides Milwaukee families with Pack ‘n Plays® to help reduce deaths due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and unsafe sleep. Pack ‘n Plays® are provided to families who are unable to purchase one and who are referred by a community professional such as a case worker or nurse.

Pack ‘n Plays® are used because they are portable and can be taken wherever the baby needs to be cared for.  Before a family is given a Pack ‘n Play®, Cribs for Kids® provides education and training on proper sleep position and sleep environment for the baby.

YOU CAN HELP!  Any contribution, large or small, is welcome.  A contribution of $100 will pay for the purchase and delivery of a Graco® Pack ‘n Play®, as well as a sleep sack and customized individual education for families to help their baby sleep safely.
