The city of Columbus, Ohio, is launching a campaign to educate parents on safe sleep practices for their babies, as reported by WBNS-10TV.
The city will release some attention-grabbing commercials to the public tomorrow. Ads that show a baby’s blanket draped over a gravesite.
Appropriate, they say, because our local infant mortality numbers are still at a higher rate than state and national numbers.
In fact, Columbus Public Health tells us in the state of Ohio, three babies die every week in unsafe sleep conditions.
If you bring it closer to home, just speaking of Franklin County alone and stretch it out over a year that amounts to 10 entire kindergarten class gone before the age of one.
