Parents should never sleep with their baby. Babies should ALWAYS be in their own safe sleep space for all naps and at night. Keep your baby’s sleep area in the same room as where you sleep for at least the first six months.

Use a firm, flat sleep surface such as a crib, bassinet, portable crib or pack-n-play and ensure your baby’s sleep area is free of blankets, pillows, toys and bumper pads. The only thing cute in your baby’s crib should be your baby.

Keep your baby safe with these simple tips

Firm & Flat

Always place your baby on a firm mattress in a safe crib with a tightly fitted sheet. A safe crib is a bassinet, play-yard or crib that has the spindles no wider than 2-3/8 inches apart and sides that do not drop down.


Dress your baby in a sleep sack, onesie or wearable blanket, depending on the temperature.

Room Share,
Not Bed Share

Having a baby’s sleep area in the same room, on a separate surface is recommended for the first six months.

Tummy Time

Laying your baby on his/her stomach for brief periods while awake is an important way to help strengthen neck and shoulder muscles. Improving your baby’s motor skills reduces risk of suffocation.


Don’t smoke in your home or around your baby. Children exposed to tobacco smoke are at risk for asthma and other respiratory illnesses, earaches, and SIDS.

Avoid Overheating

Being too hot can increase the risk of SIDS so dress your baby in only one more layer than you’d wear in the same environment.
