NPM: 5: Safe Sleep
Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): NATIONAL, Campaign

Intervention Results:

Comparing before and after the campaign, there was a significant increase in supine position for newborns from 9% to 40% (p<0.0001), for 3 month olds from 14% to 54% (p<0.0001), and for 6 months old from 30% to 64% (p<0.0001).

Intervention Results:

The prevalence of non-supine sleep position decreased significantly from 33.7% before the campaign to 13.6% after (RR=0.40, 95% CI: 0.37-0.44). The decrease was significant by maternal education, cohabitation, birth order, and maternal age.

NPM: 5: Safe Sleep
Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): Campaign, NATIONAL, POPULATION-BASED SYSTEMS

Intervention Results:

Comparing before and after the campaign, combining American Indian and Caucasian infants, there was a significant increase in supine position from 17.3% to 67.0% (OR=0.103, 95% CI: 0.070-0.151). The increase was significant among Caucasian infants from 12.0% to 68.6% (OR=0.603, 95% CI: 0.059-0.099). For American Indian infants, there was a non-significant increase from 37.9% to 54.8% (OR: 0.502, 95% CI: 0.212-1.19).

Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): CAREGIVER, Provision of Safe Sleep Item, Education/Training (caregiver), Educational Material (caregiver), PARENT/FAMILY, Training (Parent/Family), NATIONAL, Campaign, Mass Media

Intervention Results:

Ninety percent reported that the baby slept in a crib after the intervention, compared with 51 % postnatally (p < 0.01). BBB was successful in changing knowledge and practices in the majority of high-risk participants with regards to placing the infant supine in a crib for sleep. Crib distribution and safe sleep education positively influence knowledge and practices about safe sleep.
