"Getting your baby to sleep, and making sure that parents are also able to sleep, is a huge issue for everyone. People do what they feel like they must do just to get through the night. It is survival mode for parents. The tragedy lies in the fact that survival for parents can be critically dangerous for babies."

This is important: About 3,500 infants die of SUID (Sudden Unexpected Infant Death) each year, and about 40 of those happen here in Oregon. On our blog, Dr. Ben Hoffman shares some practical tips to help keep your baby safe.
