  • African American Infant Sleep Beliefs and Practices


This is a research study of African American parents/caregivers of newborns. The purpose of this research study is to learn what type of educational materials about infant safety and safe infant sleep are most effective and acceptable to parents and caregivers. The investigators will compare the responses of parents who receive enhanced materials to the responses of parents who receive the ordinary materials that are currently in use.

Study summary:

The goal of the proposed research is to determine whether a tailored multi-media mailed intervention is superior to standard non-tailored print brochures along with a generic DVD in increasing the prevalence of African American infant supine sleep during the first six months of life.
