This R15 aims to use photo-elicitation interviewing as a form of participatory research in low income urban communities to explore the lived experience of parenting and contextualize infant care practices among three non-Hispanic Black subgroups, and to quantitatively identify socio-cultural and environmental influences on sleep related infant care practices in these communities using audio computer assisted self- interviews to contribute to a social ecological model of infant sleep environments.
