Improved implementation of the safe sleep practices recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics could help reduce sleep-related infant mortality. CDC analyzed 20092015 Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) data to describe infant sleep practices. Among all mothers responding, 21.6% reported placing their infant to sleep in a nonsupine position, 61.4% shared their bed with their infant, and 38.5% reported using soft bedding.
