At NISSA, we help teach you how to protect your infant during sleep. We provide comfort and support to families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) & other unexpected deaths of an infant. We also educate the public and professionals on how to reduce the risk of sudden infant death.

Our work is so important - especially to our African American and Native American families because they are affected in far greater numbers. Please spread the word that infants should always sleep on their backs.

Though our mission is to help grieving families, we also want to reduce the number of babies that die so that fewer families are part of our "club".  
We don't know what causes SIDS but there is evidence that the "ABC's of Infant Safe Sleep" is a way to reduce SIDS and other sleep-related infant deaths.  
​What are the ABC's for a baby?
​- Always place a baby ALONE, on his/her BACK, in a safety-approved CRIB with a tight-fitting sheet and no loose objects.  
​- Babies should never be exposed to tobacco or marijuana smoke - in the prenatal period or after birth.
