Safe Sleep Campaign

Between 2006 and 2009 there were 89 infant deaths related to SIDS, SUDI, or accidental suffocation.  Of these 46 (51.7%) infants were sleeping in an adult bed at the time of their death.  The overall rate of such deaths has remained high in the last decade, prompting Milwaukee public health officials to launch a provocative city-wide safe sleep campaign to prevent them.
