House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: October 1, 2018 11:03 AM
From: Representative Garth D. Everett
To: All House members
Subject: November as "Infant Safe Sleep Month" in Pennsylvania
I intend to introduce a resolution that recognizes the month of November as “Infant Safe Sleep Month” in Pennsylvania.

The resolution references an American Academy of Pediatrics Task Force report that recommends infants be placed on their backs for sleep and that the safest environment for sleep consists of babies sleeping alone in an empty crib with a tightly-fitted sheet and sufficient sleepwear. Providing this information to parents, grandparents, relatives and day-care providers helps prevent unnecessary deaths of babies.

Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution. Contact Chanin Zwing at 787-5270 or via e-mail at czwing@pahousegop.com with any questions. Thank you.


Introduced as HR1156
