Create a Safe Sleep Environment for your Newborn



Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the leading cause of death among infants between 1 month and 1 year of age.

Placing babies on their backs to sleep on a firm sleeping surface is the best for infants.

Ensure that it is their own space, such as a crib, bassinet, or playard that does not have any extra cushioning in it that could restrict airflow

It’s also critical to help reduce the risk of SIDS and accidental suffocation by creating a safe sleeping environment.
