Let's Hold Brands Accountable.⁠
Safe Sleep is a critical topic to keeping your baby safe, so shouldn't the images you see from brands also show and demonstrate safe sleep?⁠⁠You should be seeing what you should be doing. ⁠⁠And, brands should be held accountable for showing safe sleep. ⁠⁠We want to support and encourage you on your safe sleep journey... and also lead by example. ⁠⁠⁠Here are some important sleep safety tips:⁠⁠1.

How do I breastfeed? When should he eat? Is he hot? Is he cold? Why is he crying? When should he sleep? HOW DO I GET HIM TO SLEEP? And that last question, folks, is one that I kept asking.... over, and over, and over again. For...
