Reduce Risk of SIDS

Share a room, not the bed!

Follow the ABC’s of Safe Sleep for babies to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

SIDS Horizontal ABC

Alone: Babies should sleep alone in a separate space, not on the couch, on cushions or in your bed.

Back: Babies should be placed on their backs to sleep, not on their sides or stomachs.

Crib: Babies should sleep in their own cribs (or a safety-approved Pack and Play) with a firm mattress and tight fitting sheet. Do not put bumper pads or toys in the crib – just baby!

What else can you do to reduce the risk of SIDS?

  • Breastfeed
  • Use pacifiers
  • Don’t smoke
