Safer sleep advice
How to reduce the risk of SIDS
The Lullaby Trust have developed safer sleep advice which gives simple steps for how you can sleep your baby to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), which is commonly known as cot death. It can give you the peace of mind to enjoy this special time.
Their advice is based on strong scientific evidence and should be followed for all sleep periods, not just at night.
They also have loads of information and advice on safer sleep in winter, safe room temperatures, best mattresses, bedding and sleeping positions. For further information visit their website at The Lullaby Trust
