Safe Sleep

For some families infants are expected to sleep in a crib, separated from their parents. Accidental bedsharing often happens in those early days and it is ideal to be prepared with a little information just in case

  • Never sleep with your baby on a couch or chair
  • Keep fluffy pillows and blankets away from baby while sleeping
  • Avoid bed-sharing if either parent is under the influence of certain medication, drugs, alcohol or suffers from sleep apnea
