It allows us to help parents right from the start

Making sure babies have the safest start possible is a priority. The Bronson BirthPlace – Battle Creek provides new sleep sacks for each newborn, thanks to funding from the Bronson Health Foundation. These one-piece sleepers are designed so no blankets are needed in the crib. Loose blankets, sheets, bumper pads and toys can create a sleeping hazard for babies before their first birthday.

“Sending each family home with a sleep sack for their infant allows us to help parents right from the start,” says Tammy Strandberg, manager of nursing at Bronson BirthPlace –Battle Creek. “These cozy wearable blankets provide comfort and are a tool to help prevent crib death. We hope Bronson babies enjoy many peaceful nights and naps in them.”
