DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – In 2012, more than 100 infants died in a nine county area of the Miami Valley.  Some of those deaths are sleep related. Rollovers, smothering and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Local pediatric hospital, Dayton Children’s has initiated a program to offer gifts to parents and caregivers who enroll in a safe sleep class.

It’s called Cribs for Kids and enrolling and attending can mean a new sleep sack and portable crib.

Curtis Parker’s daughter is a year old. He says he attended the class because the toddler sleeps in a bed with him and his wife. So when he finished Wednesday, he took a brand new portable crib and sleep sack home – incentives and reminders for safe sleep for baby.
