Sleep Baby Safe and Snug board book

The mission of the Charlie’s Kids Foundation is to raise awareness of SIDS by educating families, providing resources for parents and promoting dialogue about SIDS and safe sleep practices. Our primary tool in that effort is our board book, Sleep Baby Safe and Snug. Sleep Baby Safe and Snug, written by pediatrician Dr. John Hutton, tells of the classic bedtime ritual experienced through a baby's eyes, while conveying safe sleep practices in a gentle, rhythmic way. Because books are often part of a traditional bedtime routine, this book provides safe sleep instructions and reminders right before the child is placed in his/her sleeping environment. It is a must-have for all new parents, grandparents and caregivers, helping them remember the important things to do (and not do) to put baby to sleep safely.

Since its first publication in June 2013, Charlie’s Kids has distributed more than 700,000 books and launched a Spanish version last August. We have partnered with both the states of Tennessee and Ohio to provide 170,000 books to all babies born across both states. Charlie’s Kids is also proud to partner with Cribs for Kids and donates more than 30,000 books each year to be included in their safe sleep survival kits. Other partnerships include hospitals and health organizations in 40 states.
