2. Skip the pillows, extra covers and stuffed animals.
They could obstruct breathing or result in overheating, so stick to a simple fitted sheet and wearable blanket.
3. Put baby in her own sleep space.
You can share a room—in fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that for the first six months of life you do—but you should not share a bed. Opt for a bassinet, co-sleeping device or travel bed instead.
4. Make sure that sleep space is a firm one.
Pillow-top mattresses, waterbeds, sofa cushions and similarly plush surfaces are a no-go.
5. Stop swaddling as soon as baby starts trying to roll.
Your wee one will need those chubby arms free to help lift her head and roll herself back over.
