Patient Education & Resources

  • Always place your baby on their back on a firm sleep surface that isn't inclined.
  • Avoid overheating your baby. Don't dress them too warmly for sleep and keep the room they sleep in at a temperature that would be comfortable for adults.
  • Dress your baby in a one-piece sleeper or wearable blanket instead of loose blankets.
  • Remove all soft bedding, toys and bumpers from baby's sleep space. Use only a fitted sheet.
  • Breastfeeding lowers baby's risk of SIDS by 50%
  • Avoid exposing your baby to smoke and nicotine. Cigarette and other smoke can linger on clothing.
  • Avoid alcohol, marijuana, opioids and illicit drugs during pregnancy and after birth.
  • Share your room, not your bed. Your baby should sleep in your room, on a separate sleep surface that is designed for infants lie a crib, bassinet or portable play yard.
  • Offer a pacifier at nap time and bedtime. If breastfeeding, you can offer a pacifier after 1 month.
  • Take your baby to their pediatrician regularly and make sure all immunizations are up to date
