The ‘Every Sleep Counts’ programme was developed in response to learning raised in the Hampshire Child K Serious Case Review as well as other Partnership and Child Death Reviews related to safe sleep practices.

The multi agency programme highlights the need for every sleep that a baby has to be a safe sleep, whether this is at nap time or evening sleeps, when families are travelling and staying in locations other than their homes - every sleep counts. The programme provides professionals with some practical resources that reinforces safe sleep messages in a variety of scenarios, including the increased risk of co-sleeping with a baby if you have consumed alcohol, taken illicit or prescription drugs. The programme also provides information on the criminal offence of overlaying.

 Learning Outcomes:

  • Explain the criminal charge of overlaying
