The first step toward certification requires the review of the Cribs for Kids’ Infant Safe Sleep Certification Manual. The Certification Manual illustrates comprehensive criteria and requirements for implementation & reporting. This guides efforts to achieve and maintain each level of the Infant Safe Sleep Certification. Criteria have been established according to current AAP evidence-based policies, policy statements, reports, and consultation with medical experts from the AAP Safe Sleep Task Force. Ensure hospital safe sleep policies and practices incorporate the outlined criteria and meet compliance.
