WATERLOO (AP) -  Iowa health officials are offering free cribs to mothers in hopes of preventing infant deaths related to unsafe sleeping practices.

   It's part of a new program called "Cribs for Kids" that the Iowa Department of Public Health announced Thursday.

   Four counties are participating in the yearlong experiment funded by Meridian Health Plan of Iowa, which donated $75,000 to the state for the program.

   The four counties are Black Hawk, Clinton, Hamilton and Polk counties.
