With the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association recognizing September as Baby Safety Month, one of the best ways to keep babies safe is to remove the risks of suffocation while sleeping.
❶ Share a room, not a bed. If you're breastfeeding, put your baby back in a crib or bassinet after nursing.
❷ Lay babies down to sleep in a crib or bassinet with a firm mattress. Portable cribs, like a Pack 'n Play, are a good alternative.
❸ Give babies space to breathe - no pillows, bumper pads, blankets or toys in the crib or bassinet. Even one object is a suffocation risk.
❹ Place babies on their back every time, at night and for naps.
