A survey of over 8,500 parents carried out by The Lullaby Trust has shown that 40% of parents have co-slept in dangerous circumstances such as on a sofa, having drunk alcohol or as a smoker.
This Safer Sleep week, The Lullaby Trust, Public Health England, Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative and Basis (Baby Sleep Info Source, Durham University) have collaborated to create a range of resources for parents and health professionals.
The Lullaby Trust is delighted to be working in partnership with Teddy’s Wish to support bereaved families having a baby after their bereavement.
Our activities and achievements over the last year
Francine Bates has announced plans to leave the charity at the end of the year
No evidence that they help cut cot deaths or meet safety regulations
A coalition of more than 60 charities working to prevent baby deaths and pregnancy loss and to support families is today urging all NHS Trusts and Boards across the UK to improve bereavement care for parents.
The Lullaby Trust has expressed deep concern as rates of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) increase for the first time in 3 years, according to figures released today by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). The rate fell in 2014 and 2015 following an increase in 2013, which was the first since 2008.
While we recognise that the aim of some of the baby box schemes is to reduce inequality, the concerns we raised last year about baby boxes remain valid.
Our young parent project has rebranded and launched an exciting new website
Coalition of baby charities set out actions needed to achieve better results
The Lullaby Trust has developed Baby Check, a free app that helps parents test their baby for different signs of illness and determine how unwell they are.
