Safe Sleep for Babies

4 Tips for Parents and Caregivers to Help Baby Sleep Safety

1) Place your baby on his or her back for all sleep times-naps and at night.

2) Use a firm sleep surface, such as a mattress in a safety-approved crib.

3) Keep soft bedding such as blankets, pillows, bumper pads, and soft toys out of baby’s sleep area.

4) Have baby share your room, not your bed.
