Safe sleep is as easy as

ALONE

Babies should always sleep alone.  There should never be anything else in a baby's sleep space except for the baby.  A pacifier is permissable if the baby uses one, but if breastfeeding please wait until breastfeeding is well established.  Pacifiers should not be attached to a string, cord, stuffed animal or anything else. 

back

A baby should always sleep on his/her back for every sleep time both night and naps.  Back sleeping on a firm surface decreases the risk of SIDS. 

CRIB

Babies should sleep in a clean, clear crib.  A baby's crib should contain a fitted sheet only; no blankets, toys, pillows, bumpers, or other items that could cover a a baby's face and suffocate them.  Cribs, bassinets and pack & plays with firm  mattresses are the only safe places for babies to sleep.  If you need help providing a safe sleep space for your little one click here, we can help! 

Danger

Drinking and drug use impair your ability to care for a baby, making bed sharing and other unsafe sleep even more dangerous for the baby.
