Safe Infant Sleep Habits

BC Council For Families outlined some of the unsafe infant sleeping habits, and how it is becoming a public health concern (Read here). Instead of focusing on negatives, let's focus on what to do (as outlined be Erica Simmonds in the article):

Safe sleeping practices 
  • Place infants to sleep on their backs 
  • Place infants to sleep in proper sleeping attire 
  • Ensure infants are sleeping in crib, cradle or bassinet that meets regulation standards, and is properly put together 
  • Ensure there is no loose bedding, such as pillows, toys or blankets 
  • Do not place toys, cords or cables within reach
