You need to ensure your child’s safety in every room of your house, but it is especially important in your bedroom and nursery. The majority of the time we spend in these rooms is spent when sleeping, which means that we are not actively watching our children. So to help you rest a little easier, read our tips for making your room and nursery safe for your child.
Remember: The safest way for your baby to sleep is Alone, on the Back, in a Crib.
We recommend that your baby share a room with you for at least the first 6 months of life, or ideally for the first year.
Your baby should NEVER sleep in the same bed with you. This is called bed sharing. This can increase the risk of death by up to 40 times. Follow the link below to learn more about bed-sharing vs. room-sharing!
