About the Safe Sleep New Mexico Campaign

The primary goal of a safe sleep campaign is to raise awareness and promote practices that ensure the safety of infants during sleep. The campaign aims to educate parents, caregivers, and communities about the importance of providing a safe sleep environment for babies to reduce the risk of sleep-related infant deaths, such as Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) and accidental suffocation.
