Social Media Toolkit

Baby Safety

September is Baby Safety Month and is a great chance to educate parents and caregivers on baby safety standards and tips. While baby safety is important year-round, for the month of September, we encourage you to promote baby safety and education with your networks. We’ve put together this toolkit with social media posts, resources, and graphics to help raise awareness about the importance of baby safety.

These messages and links can be used as is, or they can be customized in any way that works best for your community by directing people to your prevention program’s information.

Keep an eye on the Get Parenting Tips Facebook and Instagram feeds as well for more social media updates.

Dates to Remember: September 18-24, the third week of the month, is Child Passenger Safety Awareness Week.
