Reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

    Always place your baby on his or her back to sleep, even for naps. Back to Sleep Logo

    Place your baby on a firm mattress, such as in a safety approved crib.

    Remove soft, fluffy bedding and stuffed toys from your baby's sleep area.

    Make sure your baby's head and face remain uncovered during sleep.

    Do not let your baby get too warm during sleep.

    Talk to childcare providers, grandparents, babysitters and all caregivers about SIDS risk.
