Safe Sleep for Baby
Safe sleep can help protect yoru baby from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other dnages.
Why practice safe sleep?
- The highest risk period of SIDS is between one month and four months of age, but can occur up to one year of age.
- Bed sharing increases this risk three-fold and smoking increases the risk of SIDS six-fold.
- Twenty percent of SIDS deaths occur while in the care of a child care provider, so it's important to tell anyone and everyone that takes care of your baby what the latest safe sleep practices are.
What is a safe sleep environment?
- Place baby on back for every sleep.
- Use a firm sleep surface with only a fitted sheet. The risk of SIDS increases five-fold with the use of soft bedding.
- Breastfeeding is associated with a decrease in the risk of SIDS.
- Infants should sleep in the same room, but not in the same bed as the parents for at least the first six months. This can decrease the risk of SIDS by 50 percent. The risk of SIDS of an infant sleeping on a couch with someone increases 50 times due to suffocation risk.
- No loose bedding, blankets, bumpers, stuffed animals in the sleep area. The use of a sleep sack is preferred over a blanket to decrease risk of blanket covering the infant's head or face. Decorate the room, not the bed.
- After breastfeeding is established, offer a pacifer at naptime and bedtime.
- Avoid smoke exposure during pregnancy and after birth. Not only firsthand and secondhand smoke to worry about, but also thirdhand smoke, which can take at least three washes to remove particles from clothing, hair, and furniture.
- Avoid alcohal and illicit drug use during pregnancy and after birth.
- Avoid overheating and head covering on infants.
- Provide supervised, awake tummy time to promote development.
