National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep Program: This announcement solicits applications for the National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep (NAPPSS) Program. The goal of this program is to make safe infant sleep and breastfeeding a national norm. To reduce the risk of sudden unexpected infant death (SUID), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)[1] has issued a Policy Statement describing a safe infant sleep environment, including a recommendation for room-sharing without bed-sharing.  The AAP also recommends breastfeeding for the first six months of life as additionally protective against SUID.  Researchers have studied the dynamics involved in the decision making of mothers regarding how they chose to feed their babies and where their babies sleep.  A recent study concluded that women with a strong motivation to breastfeed frequently bed share with their infants[2].  To determine the prevalence of breastfeeding and sleep location practices among mothers in the U.S., researchers conducted surveys and an analysis of factors associated with these behaviors[3].  The investigators concluded that many mothers have not adopted the AAP recommendations, and that providing advice to room share without bed sharing did not negatively affect the likelihood of breastfeeding among these mothers.
