Crib Cards

Crib card 1


The crib card was developed with support from the Near North Baby Friendly Initiative Committee consisting of representatives from Simcoe Muskoka hospitals and Midwives Groups.

The crib card is used as a health teaching tool to reinforce key messages for new parents and support the transition of care between hospital and community services. The crib card supports all families, regardless of their infant feeding decision. The card provides information on the following:

  • taking care of self
  • early feeding cues and signs that feeding is going well
  • skin-to-skin
  • hand expression
  • free supports and services

There are 5 versions of the crib card that reflect community supports available in 5 geographic locations: Barrie/South Simcoe, Collingwood, Midland, Muskoka and Orillia.

  • To order a reference copy of the crib specific to your community leave us a message on our resource line at 1-877-721-7520 extension 8323 and one will be sent to you.  Below is an example of a crib card for Barrie/South Simcoe.
