 The Chemung County Child Advocacy Center (CAC), along with its partner agencies within the county including Family

Services of Chemung County, Inc., the Chemung County Department of Social Services, Chemung County Health

Department, Chemung County District Attorney's Office and all local law enforcement agencies reminded area residents

that September is Infant Mortality Awareness Month in New York State and across the nation.


If you just had a baby, are expecting, or are taking care of a young infant it's important to create a safe sleep environment for your baby.

Because babies spend much of their time sleeping, the nursery should be the safest room in the house.

Take a few moments to learn about safe sleep by clicking on the flyers below.

Bare Is Better.

Every Baby Deserves A Chance.

Babies Sleep Safest Alone.
