A few simple precautions can help your baby sleep safely.

NOTE: This guide is informational only and you should consult your medical professional with any questions.

  • Lie your baby on his or her back, unless your health professional advises otherwise.
  • Make sure your baby is in the "feet to foot" position. All bedding should be tucked in and covers should reach no higher than the shoulders.
  • Babies old enough to roll over should be allowed to choose the sleeping position they find most comfortable.
  • Don't prop your baby up with pillows or cushions.
  • Check that your baby isn't too hot or too cold by feeling his neck or body (not hands or feet). Use lightweight bedding in layers you can add or subtract to keep your baby at a comfortable temperature.
  • Position a room thermometer above the crib and check the temperature from time to time. A regular room temperature of 18°C (65°F) should be maintained.
  • Don't use a comforter or pillow if your baby is under 12 months.
  • Use quilts and coverlets with caution as their use may lead to overheating.
  • Do consult a doctor if your baby is unwell.
  • Don't smoke - babies should be kept in a smoke-free zone.
