Free Cribs

babies in crib

DC residents can get free cribs for their infants to ensure infants are sleeping safely. Putting a baby to sleep face up in a crib reduces the chance of death caused by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), suffocation and roll over deaths related to the infant sharing a bed with parents or other children. 

The free cribs are provided through DOH’s Safe Cribs Program that provides:

  • FREE Safety Approved Pack ‘n Plays
  • Parent/Caregiver Education
  • Education for Community Partners that serve as Crib Distributors
  • Counseling
  • Referrals

Parents and/or caregivers must participate in short educational sessions on safe sleep in order to receive their free Pack ‘n Plays.

For information call 1-800-MOM-BABY (1-800-666-2229).
