Baby sleep positions for safety…

The single most effective action that parents and caregivers can take to lower a baby’s risk of SIDS is to place the baby to sleep on his or her back for naps and at night. ~NIH

Baby Sleep Positions

Feet at the base of the cot and on back:

Feet near the foot of the cot, tuck him down. Put blanket up to his chest and make sure arms are free. Make sure baby is on back and make sure the baby is close to you, so you can keep an eye on baby.

After swaddling…

Baby needs to be on his or her back, but may sleep on back in different ways.

Different back positions for swaddled baby:

  • Straight down on back
  • Upright, as in a swing
  • Slightly to side with towel
  • Using a crib wedge

Remember, though, that younger babies should not be placed upright as their neck muscles have not yet developed and this could be dangerous to their breathing. This solution is for older babies only.
