Always place baby flat on his/her back to sleep. Lay them face up, face clear with their feet to the bottom of the cot/crib or moses basket, in the same room as parent for the first 6 months.
Never use pillows, duvets, cot bumpers, sleep positioners or baby nests/cocoons.
Use a well-fitting baby sleep sack or cellular blankets tucked in.
Keep nappy sacks out of reach.
Keep sleep space clear – no toys or additional softness.
Never place the cot near window blinds – use a blind cord cleat or cord winder to keep the cord out of reach of children.
Unplug electrical cables when not in use and store safely. Use a cable tidy or secure cables to skirting boards where possible.
When baby is sleeping or unsupervised always remove clothing or items that may add risk, such as headbands, and dummy/soother cords.
Always supervise your child when they are eating or drinking.
Cut food into thin batons.
