Safer sleep week from The Lullaby Trust

UK charity, The Lullaby Trust, raises awareness of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and provides expert advice on safer baby sleep, along with specialist support for bereaved families.

Between the 15th - 21st March 2021, they're running a campaign called 'Safer sleep week' to raise awareness of sudden infant death syndrome and share safer sleep advice to reduce the risk of it occurring. Their 2021 campaign is specifically aimed at Dads, who often have a key role in caring for their baby and are, in some cases, the primary carer.
