Infant Safe Sleep Week
Sleep like a baby

​Gov. Mark Dayton, the state of Minnesota and Dakota County have declared Sept. 23-27 Infant Safe Sleep Week.

The state and county are working together to eliminate preventable infant deaths by encouraging day care providers and parents to lay babies to sleep on their backs — free of blankets and pillows, free of toys, and free to breathe.
