How to prevent unsafe sleep deaths

Tell everyone that these steps save lives:

  • Room-sharing offers almost all of the benefits of bed-sharing, without the risks—bring baby’s crib
    into the parents’ room for the 1st 6 months
  • Keep baby’s crib safe with a tight-fitting crib sheet and firm mattress
  • Keep crib free of blankets, pillows, bumper pads & stuffed animals
  • Use a sleep sack instead of a loose blanket to keep baby safe & warm
  • Place infant on its back when putting down to sleep
