Safe Sleep

ABCD's of Safe Sleep
A- Alone
Stay close, sleep apart. Every baby needs their own Safe Sleep Space. Sleeping in the parents’ bedroom is safest for infants throughout the first year of life.
B- Back
On my back for night and naps. To reduce the risk of SIDS, a baby should always sleep on his/her back and every sleep counts both night time sleep as well as nap time.
C- Crib
Clean, clear, crib. A baby should sleep in his/her crib for every sleep. The crib should only contain your baby sleeping on a firm mattress with a fitted sheet.
Be aware, not impaired. Drinking and drug use impair your ability to care for a baby, making bed-sharing and other unsafe sleep even more dangerous for the baby
