Safe Sleep Photo Gallery

Colorado’s Infant Safe Sleep Partnership is a statewide coalition working to promote infant safe sleep.
We are recruiting families to develop a photo gallery of caregivers with their infants in safe sleep settings.

The photos will be used to promote safe sleep education throughout the state to ensure all infants sleep safely, every sleep. Your home could be a valuable resource to show other families what safe sleep looks like and keep all babies safe. Parents and caregivers can take simple steps to reduce the dangers of unsafe sleep environments.

What is safe sleep?
Here are the safe sleep guidelines that we’d like to see for photos:

Ask:
Currently there are very few images of families practicing safe sleep. The photos are outdated and not representative of what families actually look like in Colorado.

We are looking for families with infants under four months of age who are willing to allow a photographer to visit your home to photograph you, your infant, and your safe sleeping environment (see above). Keep in mind, we want your home to look like you live there, so no pressure to clean!

These photos may be used in a number of places, such as in Infant Safe Sleep Partnership materials, Child Fatality Prevention System materials, and with other partners such as CDPHE, CDHS and other national partners working on safe sleep.
