  • Use a firm sleep surface and fitted sheet.
  • No blankets, bumper pads or toys.
  • Do not allow baby to sleep with an adult or child in a bed, couch or chair.
  • After breastfeeding, return baby to his crib.
  • You may offer a dry pacifier, with no strings or clips.
  • No smoking near baby
  • Provide tummy time for your baby to play while awake to assist development.
