Safer Sleep Principles

1.Back to Sleep
Put your baby to sleep on his/her back for every sleep, whether it’s naptime or nighttime.

2.Firm Mattress Free of Hazards
To reduce the risk of suffocation, put your baby to sleep on a firm mattress with a tight-fitting sheet and no bumper pads, pillows, heavy blankets, comforters, quilts or toys in the sleep space.

3.Crib or Bassinet
Put your baby to sleep in an approved crib, cradle or bassinet. This is the safest place for your baby to sleep!

Whether you’re taking your little one out camping in the wilderness, to an overnight hotel stay, or just over to a friend’s house for a mommy play-date, a portable crib and baby bed are a must. Keeping your child safe, contained, and happily napping away will help everyone have a great time.

4.Sharing Your Room
Having your baby sleep on a separate sleep surface in the same room as you for the first six months helps keep your baby safe.

Breastfeeding helps prevent sleep-related infant death. Any amount of breast milk will give your baby`s immune system a boost and help keep him/her healthy.

6.Avoid Overheating
Babies like to be warm but not hot. For sleeping, you can keep the room temperature comfortable (around 18 degrees C) and use a thin, lightweight blanket, sleep sack or blanket-weight sleeper. There is no need to swaddle or put a hat on indoors.
