Baby Bed Instruction Video

As refugee families settle in to their new lives in San Antonio, the Center for Refugee Services (CRS) helps them prepare to safely welcome newborns into their homes.

CRS provides a 25-minute educational video or in class instruction on how to provide a safe sleep environment for their infants and help prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

As part of that program, the Southwest SIDS Research Institute’s A.C.C.E.S.S program (All Children Can Enjoy Safe Sleep) provides free Pack N Play beds to refugee families without the means to purchase one, who have completed the single session educational class.
