SIDS/SUIDS Support and Information

As a new parent, you will need to decide where and how your baby will sleep. By following safe sleep practices, your baby is at a lower risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), suffocation, and accidents during sleep.

Your baby should:

  • Always be placed on the back to sleep
  • Sleep on a firm mattress with only a tight fitting crib sheet
  • Wear a one piece sleeper instead of a blanket for warmth
  • Never sleep with bumper pads, wedges, or positioners

For help creating a safe sleeping area or to ask questions, please call and speak with a Public Health Nurse.
