Awesome presentation – loved it!  Lots of practical information.
Sharon – Childcare Provider

Just wanted to thank you for coming yesterday.  I heard nothing but great comments about your presentation and the materials.  I heard some things I didn’t know and I had been doing lots of research on this subject as a new grandma so was really happy to hear it.  I talked to the licensing manager and she was very excited about it as well.  Again, thanks for your time and efforts – they were very appreciated.

Training for Safe Sleep can be life saving.  Borchardt Consulting educates adults on the practical behaviors necessary for infant safety.  Our workshops include SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), SUID (Sudden Unexpected Infant Death), Safe Sleep, Tummy Time and Grief topics.

Safe Sleep

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome  (SIDS or Crib Death) is the leading cause of death in infants between 28 days and 1 year of age.  However, since the early 90’s we have made enormous progress in our knowledge base as a result of research and better death scene investigations.  We cannot yet predict which baby may die of SIDS, but we can identify the babies that are at the highest risk.  We can also reduce the possibility that a baby may die by making some simple behaviour changes.  And they are almost all FREE!

  • Always put healthy baby on her back to sleep.
  • Always put baby to sleep in a safe crib with a firm mattress.
  • Remove all soft bedding such as blankets, bumpers, stuffed animals from the crib before sleep.
  • Sleep baby in a well-ventilated room and make certain that his head is not covered by hats or blanketing.
  • Never smoke around the air that baby will breathe.
  • Breastfeed if possible for the first year.
  • Offer a pacifier for sleep times after one month of age.

Childcare Licensing Act

July 6, 2011 was a momentous day for parents of infants, child care providers and SIDS of Illinois, Inc. Governor Quinn, Representative Emily McAsey, Representative Linda Chapa LaVia, Mayor George Pradel from Naperville, SIDS families, Board members and staff and supporters all convened at the SIDS office to sign Public Act 97-0083 into law. This new law, effective January 1, 2012 will require child care provides who are infant/toddler certified to have SIDS/SUID training once every three years to maintain their licenses.
