Winter months lead to increase in unsafe sleep deaths in children, DPS says
Rachel Galvan, a child safety specialist for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, says it’s heartbreaking to read the reports each year related to unsafe sleep investigations during these winter months. Babies should sleep, “A” alone, on their “B” back and in a “C” crib to help reduce their chance of death, Galvan explains. Each year, Texas CPS sees an average of 158 unsafe sleep deaths. Since December 1st, the state reports 31 unsafe sleep death investigations and 12 of them are in Region 8, which includes Bexar County. “It’s a generational practice where families do sleep closely with all the siblings, the children and both parents are all sleeping together,” she said.
