Safe sleep from the beginning. Newborns should sleep on their back, in their own bed, with no blankets, pillows, or stuffed animals. Help your baby sleep safe and sound by starting from day 1!

I am passionate about this topic. I have seen parents struggle to understand what is happening and being done to their kids. This then translates in difficulty advocating and communicating worries to the care team. We can do better!

Quality CPR also saved my dad’s life in the back of an ambulance in 2019. Forever grateful for those who were trained with this lifesaving skill that night ❤️ this 911 call below is moving and hopefully will motivate others to get trained.

Excited to see this innovation! I hope it will reduce life-threatening, pediatric button battery ingestions. If you think your child has swallowed a button battery, IMMEDIATELY go to your nearest emergency department.
