Injuries to infants and young children can happen in the blink of an eye - even when you think you're in complete control. The Injury Prevention Center provides information to help caregivers keep children safe in homes.
The Injury Prevention Center partners with local communities to provide Safety Baby Showers for expectant mothers. Mothers who attend the showers receive education on home safety, safe sleep, motor vehicle safety and prevention of Shaken Baby Syndrome.

Did you know that babies should always be put to sleep on their back and that caregivers should remove all soft bedding, bumpers, and toys from their sleep space? Arkansas Children's has been recognized as a Cribs for Kids® National Gold Certified Safe Sleep Champion, which means we are dedicated to providing caregivers tips and resources to keep your baby sleeping safely!
The materials below may assist hospitals in the development of safe sleep policies and programs for infants. For more information, contact the Injury Prevention Center at 501-364-3400 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
