5 rules of sleep safety
1 | Place baby on her back.
That goes for naptime and nighttime. Your little one can practice tummy time while she’s awake and supervised.
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.
