Day or Night, Sleep Right

Day or Night, Sleep Right

Day or Night, Sleep Right is a key message to those who care for infants across North Yorkshire and York. The ‘Day or Night, Sleep Right’ campaign has been created as a way of providing information regarding the importance of safe sleeping environments for infants to reduce the number who have sadly died as a result of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) .

Sometimes families may be away from home and ‘Out of routine’ for example on holiday or visiting relatives. In light of this the Partnerships are urging people to think about safe sleeping arrangements for their infants.

Despite the substantial reduction in the incidences of SUDI in the 1980’s and 1990s via the Back to Sleep campaign, at least 300 infants continue to die suddenly and unexpectedly each year in England and Wales, sadly some of these deaths have occurred in North Yorkshire and York. The Safeguarding Children Partnerships are working with multi-agency partners to help reinforce the key messages of safer sleep to help increase awareness to expectant mothers and fathers, as well as wider carer givers such as grandparents and other family and friends.
