The MomsFirst Program had a Photo Contest during the month of September, which is Safe Sleep Awareness Month. There were eight categories. (Breastfeeding Champion, Beautiful Bump, Safest Sleeper, Ready Reader, Daddy & Me, Mommy & Me, MomsFirst Model, and Fabulous Family)

A MomsFirst participant from our site won the category of Safest Sleeper in our Photo Contest. We always encourage and educate participants to follow the ABCD’s of safe sleep. (Alone on Back in Crib and Don’t allow smoking around baby.)


Fun Fact: The participant, Laura Pizarro, was also a former participant of MomsFirst’s Deputy Director, Megan Walsh, back in 2006.

Her baby picture is below and she will receive one of the baskets pictured next week.
