National has requested that Chapters include a Shaken Baby Brochure in each layette package.  This year we have a new brochure with one side English and the other Spanish.  NCCS will contact the Chapter President's in March for your yearly order.  We supply as many as you need and only charge you for the shipping costs.  Our office only has room to store a small quantity so please place your order for the year in March. 

Many Chapters see the layette as an opportunity to include other literature that would be helpful to new parents.

Please be careful that the literature

  •   Comes from a credible source

  •   Is up to date

  •   Contains nothing of a political nature


Cape May County
includes literature on smoking, car seat installation and safe sleep.

Washington DC includes educational material consisting of information on immunizations, breastfeeding, SIDS, consumer safety etc.

Akron includes literature on shaken baby syndrome, how not to lay your baby down, brushing teeth, and reading to your children.
