Safe Sleeping

By The Lullaby Trust



Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden and unexplained death of a baby where no cause is found. While SIDS is rare, it can still happen and there are steps parents can take to help reduce the chance of this tragedy occurring.


Here are some tips for safer sleep from the Lullaby Trust. Although we don’t yet know how to completely prevent SIDS, it is possible to significantly lower the chances of it happening by following this advice. You should try to follow the advice for all sleep periods where possible, not just at night.


THINGS YOU CAN DO:

* Always place your baby on their back to sleep

* Keep your baby smoke free during pregnancy and after birth

* Place your baby to sleep in a separate cot or Moses basket in the same room as you for the first 6 months

* Use a firm, flat, waterproof mattress in good condition


THINGS TO AVOID:

* Never sleep on a sofa or in an armchair with your baby

* Don’t sleep in the same bed as your baby if you smoke, drink or take drugs or are extremely tired, if your baby was born prematurely or was of low birth-weight

* Avoid letting your baby get too hot

* Don’t cover your baby’s face or head while sleeping or use loose bedding
