Casting for the next "Strong Baby" held in Milwaukee

The push to keep babies safe was highlighted in a citywide event searching for Milwaukee's next \"strong baby.\"

The prenatal health campaign is looking for the perfect poster child to promote healthy living in Milwaukee families.

Since the initiative was launched in 2011 more lives have been saved, but the city says those numbers are starting to creep up again.

They hope conversations between parents, and awareness through social media...and of course those cute strong babies will once again make the difference.

\"The disparity is definitely a problem, the fact that we're seeing more babies of color having a hard time making it to that first birthday, is something the whole community should be involved in.\" Lashawndra Vernon, of the Strong Baby campaign, said.
