Safe sleep is hard. Your baby is worth it.


Through Charlie Paul Hanke’s story, we aim to raise awareness of SIDS by educating families, providing resources for new parents and promoting dialogue about SIDS and safe sleep practices.


Our mission is to distribute information about SIDS and safe sleep practices to families. Sleep Baby Safe and Snug will serve as the primary vehicle of safe sleep education.


This special children’s board book written specifically for Charlie’s Kids by pediatrician and author John Hutton, teaches caregivers what to do and not do to put a baby to sleep safely. The book will not only provide information about SIDS in a new, easy to understand way, but it will also promote early literacy.
