Safe Sleep Q&A

How much do babies sleep?

14-17 hours a day.

What is the best way to reduce my baby's risk of SIDS?

Placing your baby on their back to sleep, in a crib, and free from any loose bedding or objects is the best way to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Why can't my baby and I bed-share?

Bed-sharing increases the risk of SIDS as the baby could be suffocated or rolled over on.

What if my baby keeps rolling over after I put them to sleep on their back?

If your baby can roll over back and forth, there is no need to reposition them on their back.

My baby sleeps really well in their car seat. Can I just leave them in the car seat to sleep once we get home?

No. Your baby should not be left or placed to sleep in a car seat outside of the car or in a swing or bouncer at any time. These devices can cause asphyxiation and can injure the baby.
