Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To determine decision-making factors for infant sleep position among low-income parents and other relatives.

METHODS:

Data were collected from 18 focus groups conducted with low-income parents and relatives of infants across the state of Missouri.

RESULTS:

That the decision-making process regarding infant sleep practices was complex.

CONCLUSION:

Although most participants are familiar with the "Back to Sleep" campaign, there was a lack of understanding over why nonprone sleep is necessary, and the change in this message over time added to the parents' uncertainty.
