We educate parents on how to put their infants to sleep on their backs to reduce the risk of SIDS. This program provided by The Briggs and Barrett Project was started by two area mothers, Melissa West and Allison Uecker, in memory of their sons, Briggs and Barrett, who both died of SIDS.
- The Halo Sleep Sack enables babies to be swaddled without using a blanket.
- The Sleep Baby: Safe and Snug book is educational for parents, but written in a way that can be read to children.
- We are currently partnered with Faith Regional Health Services, Columbus Community Hospital, and Pender Community Hospital so each infant born in these facilities is sent home with a Halo Sleepsack Swaddle and Sleep Baby: Safe and Snug book to promote safe sleep practices.
