Promote Safe Sleep for Babies
All babies should sleep alone, on their back, in a crib or Pack n' Play. Alone does not mean lonely. The safest place for a baby to sleep is in a crib or Pack n' Play, near the mom, but without bumpers, blankets or stuffed animals.
Spend Quality Time With Children
Reading, talking and singing to children daily can help them thrive. And remember that even young children can begin to see patterns in everyday objects.
Connect Children to a Medical Home as Soon as Possible
A medical home is a place where all your child’s care is coordinated by a primary care provider (PCP) including check-ups, sick care, shots, and care for chronic health conditions like asthma or ADHD. The medical home is a child’s first step to wellness as they can also help to connect you with resources to support your non-medical needs that we know impact a child’s health and wellbeing.
