Safe Sleep ABCs

There’s nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby – but every year, more than 3,000 babies die from unsafe sleep practices. 

How can you keep your sleeping baby safe?

Remember A B C. 

ABCs of Safe Sleep

1) Alone: Having your child in the same room is fine, but having them in the same bed is not. 

2) Back: Babies should be placed on their backs while sleeping to lessen the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). 

3) Crib: Babies shouldn’t sleep in adult beds or on couches/recliners, etc., with or without an adult present. Make sure your baby’s crib has no blankets, pillows, toys, or other soft objects or loose bedding. Place the crib away from other potential hazards like window blind cords. 

All babies deserve safe sleep. It’s as easy as ABC.
