Six steps to a safer sleep for baby

Published on: Monday, 14-December-2015

  • Keep baby away from smoke, before and after birth.
  • Put baby in a cot, crib or moses basket to sleep - never fall asleep with them on a sofa or chair.
  • Never fall asleep with baby after drinking or taking drugs/medication.
  • Put baby to sleep on their back with their feet to the foot of the cot.
  • Keep baby’s head and face uncovered and make sure they don’t get too hot.
  • Breastfeed your baby - support is available if you need it.
