CCDF Health and Safety Requirements Brief #4: Reducing the Risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and Using Safe Sleeping Practices

This brief, one in a series of nine addressing health and safety requirements specified in the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014, provides an overview of reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and using safe sleeping practices for center-based and home-based child care settings. Licensing administrators and CCDF administrators may find the brief helpful as they begin to assess and consider future revisions to state standards for both licensed and license-exempt providers. They may also be of value to child care and Head Start providers in understanding and improving the health and safety of their early learning and development settings.
