Baby Education

Educating Mothers & Mothers to be
on the “BEST” ways to provide the best care.

Baby Education for South Texas (BEST) is a collaboration of regional leaders in pediatric health, advocacy and education working to keep the children of South Texas safe, especially while they sleep. With representatives of many of San Antonio’s community organizations and each major health care system, BEST is pooling resources and coordinating citywide efforts to ensure every child born in Bexar County is safe and healthy.

Highest Mortality Rate

Did you know?

Approximately 3,500 infants die annually in the United States from sleep-related deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS); ill-defined deaths; and accidental suffocation and strangulation (AAP 2016 Policy Statement). Despite increased awareness, the number of infants dying while in an unsafe sleep environment continues to rise. Join BEST to help protect our infants!
