Kohl's Safe Baby University

Nationally, every 18 minutes a baby dies before his or her first birthday. The primary cause of these deaths is lack of knowledge regarding preventing injury and death in infants. Additionally, mothers encounter barriers to obtaining needed safety items. The Kohl’s Safe Baby University, a class for expectant mothers, was designed to educate mothers to reduce risks and cultivate a safe environment for their newborn infant.

Topics include: 

• Child Passenger Safety

• Safe Sleep

• Coping With a Crying Baby

• Infant Nutrition

• Fire and Burn Safety
