About 3500 babies die from sleep related caused each year

 

The safest way for a newborn to sleep is:

  • On their back until they are able to move and choose their own sleeping position.
  • Baby should sleep on a firm mattress with a tight fitting sheet. This reduces the risk of the sheet slipping and covering babies face.
  • No soft toys should be placed in the cot which could smother the baby.
  • The crib or cot should have no side cushions or padding.
  • 5 Baby should be covered in a blanket or sheet depending on the temperature, which is tightly tucked in to avoid smothering.
  • The use of a pacifier has been linked to a reduction in deaths from SIDS so this is safe to use if you choose to.
  • Baby should sleep alone in your room. Co sleeping causes the deaths of 133 babies each year.
