Safe sleep and pumpkin harvest news

Good morning!

In the news today, we discussed safe sleep practices for infants. New data show that almost all sudden infant deaths in the state were a result of unsafe sleep, which is largely due to suffocation hazards such as soft bedding, pillows, co-sleeping and toys. To find out more about SIDS and safe sleep, visit the MDH website.

On a lighter note, reports of a great pumpkin harvest are in! The MDA says this fall’s cool and wet weather has resulted in a wonderful harvest, just in time for jack-o-lantern carving! To find out more about Minnesota Grown produce, visit their website.
