Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): Provision of Safe Sleep Item, CAREGIVER

Intervention Results:

At baseline, 83% of the caregivers in the control group and 89% in the intervention group reported placing their infants to sleep on their backs. At follow-up, the control group increased to 88% while the intervention group remained at 89%. No significant difference was observed between the two groups at post-intervention.

Intervention Results:

  • Audit data showed that there was a significant increase in the rate of supine positioning from 39% at baseline to 83% at follow-up (p<0.001).
  • Parental surveys showed that there was a significant increase in the rate of supine position from 73% at baseline to 93% at follow-up (p<0.05).

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.

Intervention Results:

Prior to the intervention, 70% of infants were found in the supine sleep position; after the intervention, 90% were found supine (p<0.01).

Intervention Results:

  • Audit data showed that there was a non-significant increase in supine position from 81.0% to 84.3% from baseline to follow-up (p=0.54).
  • Caregiver report showed that there was a non-significant increase in supine position from 89.3% to 93.8% (p=0.42).

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.
