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:

  • Understand the importance of safe sleep and what it is
  • Understand why environments may not be a safe place for a baby to sleep
  • Explain the criminal charge of overlaying
  • Understand the risk factors associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
  • Understand the importance of a multi-agency approach
  • Support the workforce to deliver the safe sleep message to parents and carers

 What other delegates have said about this course:

“As a family support worker, I am more confident about safe sleep in babies and will now be able to give better information to parents to promote better practice. It is also important for them to understand the dangers of poor practice.”

“Excellent course and delivered very professionally.”
