We provide Safe Infant Sleep education classes in Coeur d’Alene, Boise, Caldwell and Spokane so that every parent, childcare provider and health professional is aware of current evidence-based practices to reduce the risk of sudden unexpected infant death.

Awareness

Bringing awareness to the American Academy of Pediatrics Safe Infant Sleep Guidelines is a major focus for us. The Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation participates in over 200 awareness events such as baby fairs, expos and family events throughout Idaho, Washington and Montana. We work closely with community OBGYN and Pediatrician offices and birthing hospitals to ensure safe infant sleep is being discussed. We host three major fundraising/outreach events each year to enable us to continue our life-saving work. With continuous awareness and education, it is our hope to see our unsafe sleep accidental deaths decrease in the states we serve.
