Intervention Results:

In the third postpartum month, 42.9% of the mothers in the intervention group indicated that they put their infants to sleep in the supine position, compared with 24% in the control group (p=0.009). In the sixth postpartum month, these values were 41.8% and 19.1% respectively (p=0.001).

Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): Note-Taking (caregiver), CAREGIVER, Education/Training (caregiver), Educational Material (caregiver)

Intervention Results:

Mothers in the intervention group were more likely than those in the control group to report placing their infant on their back for sleep (88% vs. 78%), but the difference was not statistically significant (RR=1.13, 95% CI: 0.95-1.34). However, first-time mothers were significantly more likely to report placing their infant on the back for sleep (95% vs. 65%, RR=1.46, 95% CI: 1.06-2.00).

Intervention Results:

Between baseline and a year after the initiation of the intervention, the rate of supine positioning increased from 82% to 95%, but the increase was not statistically significant (p=0.183). From baseline to a year following the intervention, the rate of supine positioning remained stable at 83% (p=1.000).

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:

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.
