September Tips of the Month: Reducing the Risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
  • Place infants on their back to sleep. Infants who sleep on their stomach and sides have a higher rate of SIDS than those who sleep on their back.

  • Place your infant only on a firm mattress in a safe crib; never on an adult bed, couch, chair or anywhere else.

  • There should be nothing in the crib but the baby. No heavy blankets, bed spreads, quilts, comforters or large stuffed animals. These items could obstruct the baby's breathing.

  • Never allow your baby to sleep alongside another person be it child or adult. The risk of smothering by the other person is too great.

  • Do not over-clothe the infant while he/she sleeps. Keep the room at a temperature that is comfortable for you. Overheating and infant can increase the risk of SIDS.

  • Don't have your infant in the same house with someone who smokes. The greater the exposure to tobacco smoke, the greater the risk of SIDS.
