The way your baby sleeps is important for his or her safety. Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden and unexplained death of an infant. It is the major cause of death in babies from 1 month to 1 year of age.
Never place your child on a water bed, bean bag or any kind of furniture that is soft. Your baby’s nose or mouth may become blocked and he or she may suffocate.
Avoid putting your baby in bed with you. Unlike cribs, which are designed to meet safety standards for babies, adult beds are not designed for a baby and may trap the baby and cause suffocation. Room-sharing, but not bed-sharing, is recommended.
