SAFE SLEEP FOR YOUR BABY
Alone Your baby is safest sleeping alone in a crib. Your baby should not sleep in an adult’s bed or other children or pets because their mouth or nose can become covered. On My Back Your baby is safest sleeping on their back. The safest position for your baby is on their back, unless directed otherwise by a physician. Educate grandparents and caregivers about back to sleep. In My Crib Your baby is safest sleeping in their crib. A safe crib, with a firm mattress with a fitted sheet, is the best place for your baby to sleep. No pillows, bumper pads, quilts, blankets or stuffed animals should be in the crib with the baby.
