Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

Sudden Infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the leading cause of death among infants between one month and one year of age. Changing your baby’s sleeping environment can help your baby sleep safely and reduce the risk of SIDS.

To create a safe sleep environment:

  • Always place a baby on his or her back to sleep for naps and at night to reduce the risk of SIDS.
  • Use a firm sleep surface, covered by a fitted sheet; a crib, bassinet, portable crib, or play yard that conforms to the safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recommended.
  • Your baby should not sleep in an adult bed, on a couch, or on a chair alone, with you, or with anyone else.
  • Keep your baby's sleep area in the same room where you sleep (for the infant's first year). Room sharing not bed-sharing. Always place the baby in a safety-approved crib, bassinet, or portable crib for sleep.
  • Sitting devices like bouncy seats, swings, infant carriers, or strollers should not be used for routine sleep.
  • Keep soft objects such as pillows and blankets, toys and bumpers out of your baby's sleep area.
  • Wedges and positioners should not be used.
  • Do not smoke during pregnancy or allow smoking around your baby.
  • Do not let your baby get too hot during sleep.
  • Breastfeed your baby.
  • Give your baby a dry pacifier that is not attached to a string for naps and at night to reduce the risk of SIDS after breastfeeding is established.
  • Supervised Skin to Skin is recommended to all mothers and infants immediately following birth regardless of feeding or delivery, (as soon as the mother is medically stable, awake, and able to respond to her newborn) and to continue for at least an hour. Once the mother starts to get sleepy, return the baby to the bassinet.
