The ABCs of Safe Sleep
To keep your baby as safe as possible, always remember your ABCs:
- A, Alone – No bed-sharing. Infants should never be placed to sleep with a parent, sibling, or another caregiver. Nothing should ever be in the crib with an infant.
- B, Back – An infant should never be placed to sleep on their side or stomach. Placing a baby to sleep on their stomach doubles the risk of death!
- C, Crib – Infant should always sleep in a safety-approved crib, bassinet, portable crib; free of any soft objects (pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, and/or bumper pads). The crib mattress or portable crib mat should be firm with only a tight-fitted sheet.
