Sleep Safety tips for parents
- Always place your baby on his/her back, except during supervised tummy time. Pediatricians recommend babies be placed on their backs to nap and sleep to reduce the risk of SIDS.
- Keep baby’s sleep area in the same area where parents sleep to reduce baby’s risk.
- Give your baby plenty of supervised tummy time when they are awake for healthy development.
- Keep the baby’s sleep area free of loose items, such as toys, crib bumpers, pillows and blankets. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of wearable blankets.
We urge you to follow the safe sleeping tips extended by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, which include always placing a baby on its back to sleep, because absolutely nothing is more important than the safety of a child. Please visit http://www.cpsc.gov/ for more information.
