Safer sleeping – it sounds very simple, but there are many cases where this is not being practiced. Cot death or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is becoming very common. You need to think about where and how your baby sleeps.
Back to sleep:
Always put your baby on their back and don’t let anyone fall asleep holding your baby.
The safest place:
A well designed sturdy cot located in your room (if you are a smoker, do not smoke in your room) is the best for your baby.
Babies can sometimes over heat and develop a dangerously high temperature in a short space of time, and this is known to play a role in cot death. Never cover a babies head indoors and never sleep with the baby in your own bed. (The baby can over heat or you could unknowingly crush your baby.)
