Cribs for Kids® Program at UPMC Magee-Womens in Central Pa.

Cribs for Kids® BadgeUPMC Magee-Womens in Central Pa. is a Cribs for Kid's® partner providing a program to educate parents, family members, child care providers, and health professionals about safe infant sleep.

This is preventative program that seeks to reduce infant mortality by educating families on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and providing safe sleeping locations and positions for their infants. UPMC in central Pa.'s Cribs for Kid's® will ensure infants have a safe place to sleep by providing eligible low income parents who have no other way to afford a crib with a free Graco "Pack 'n Play" style crib.

It's as easy as the A, B, C's

  • Alone – Keep your baby's sleep area close but separate from where others sleep. Your baby should not sleep with others in a bed, on a couch, or in a chair.
  • Back is best – Your baby should be placed to sleep on his or her back in a safety-approved crib on a firm mattress every time during naps and at nighttime.
  • Crib – Remove all loose bedding, comforters, quilts, sheepskins, stuffed animals, bumpers, wedges, and pillows from your baby's crib.

For more information or if you need a safe place for your baby to sleep, please call  Nurse-Family Partnership® at 717-782-2335.
