Safe Sleeping Spaces for Baby
You want the best for your baby including a night of peaceful and safe sleep. A few things to keep in mind when putting baby to sleep for the night or a nap.
• Make sure baby’s sleeping space is free from clutter – blankets, toys, pillows, etc.
• Place baby on his back when putting him down to sleep. This position reduces the incidence of SIDS. Make sure your caregivers know to do this as well.
• When traveling, it is best to bring your own playard or bassinet for baby since you don’t know how old or in what condition hotel cribs will be.
We love the March of Dimes website for great resources and tips for creating a safe sleeping environment for baby.
