Safe Sleep Sweepstakes!


October is SIDS Awareness month. More than 3,500 babies in the U.S. die annually from SIDS and SUIDS; in the last five years in Allen County, 23 babies have died from SIDS. One of the best ways to prevent SIDS and SUIDS is to put your baby in a safe sleep environment.


You can do this by remembering your ABCs:

A—baby should be Alone without mom or dad, or any toys/stuffed animals/bumpers

B—baby should be on their Back

C—baby should be in a Crib or pack-n-play, not on a couch or in mom or dad’s bed.


These rules could mean life or death for a baby; but still, our Pinterest feeds and makeover shows are filled with images of unsafe sleep environments—pillows and blankets and toys galore.

That’s why for the month of October, Healthier Moms and Babies is hosting the Flip This Crib Safe Sleep Sweepstakes where we’re inviting you to #FlipThisCrib and show off your images of safe, yet cute sleep environments. They can be images of any nursery where someone isn’t going to kick you out for being there.


The Grand Prize Winner will win design time with Megan Gaerte of West Central Home to design a nursery, $150 to Target, two gallons of paint and $25 from Umber’s Do It Best, $100 to Matilda Jane, and a newly released Matilda Jane bedding set, similar to the one seen below!

The Second Prize Winner will win $100 to Matilda Jane!
