Sometimes, getting your baby to sleep can be hard. But safe sleep is worth it.
Let's help more babies reach their first birthdays. Join the Evidence-Based Sleep Training group to help you get your child to sleep independently in a safe way.
Creating a Safe Sleep Environment
Same Room, Separate Bed
A is for Alone!
Babies should sleep by themselves, in their own sleep space with no other people. Adults should never share a bed with a baby.
Every Nap, Every Sleep, Every Time
On Their Back!
Babies who sleep on their backs are less likely to choke or suffocate than babies who sleep on their stomachs.

In a Crib!
Adult beds, couches, and chairs are not safe places for babies to sleep. Keep pillows, blankets, and toys out of the crib because babies can suffocate on soft objects.

Tips to increase safety
These safety tips apply when safe sleep recommendations are followed.
Set the temperature in the room to the same temperature for an adult.
Dress the baby in as little or as much clothing as you would dress yourself.
Use a sleep sack.
Breastfeeding, if possible
Breastfeeding exclusively for the first six months is recommended by the AAP, as it reduces the risk of unsafe sleep-related death.
Research has also indicated use of a pacifier while sleeping reduces the risk of sleep-related death.
The pacifier should be offered only once breastfeeding is well established (often at 3 to 4 weeks of age).
Don’t attach the pacifier to clothes or toys. Strings or cords can strangle the baby during sleep.
