In 2016, under a Maternal Child Health grant, Lawrence County Health Department partnered with Cribs for Kids, a national organization whose mission is "helping every baby sleep safer". Since that time, we have provided a pack 'n play or cribette to hundreds of infants who did not otherwise have a safe sleep environment. We have worked with WIC, Early Head Start, churches, rehab facilities, and many other agencies to provide cribettes to infants.
Qualifications for the cribettes include:
infant must live in Lawrence County, Ohio
infant must be under 12 months of age, or
mom must be at least 8 months pregnant
must be eligible for WIC
When the parent comes for the cribette, he/she is asked to watch a video, and safe sleep education is provided at the time of the visit. In addition, a call is made later for follow-up education.
