In L.A. County, babies are dying from preventable deaths


In L.A. County, there are more sleep-related deaths than all other accidental child deaths. These deaths are completely preventable.

Accidental suffocation is the greatest risk for babies under age 1. These deaths are silent and quick. It just takes seconds for a baby to suffocate.

Babies are small, without voices and have no strength. For the first 3-4 months, they can only breathe through their nose. A baby's nose–unlike an adult's–doesn't have cartilage, so it can flatten easily and block airflow, causing suffocation.
