Safe baby sleep

Making your baby’s cot is a simple, quick task you do every day; but remember that how you make it is really important. Use the following guidelines to ensure your baby is as safe as they can possibly be. 

  • Make sure your baby’s head remains uncovered during sleep.

  • Put your baby on the back to sleep.

  • Tuck in your baby’s bedclothes securely.

  • Position your baby’s feet at the bottom of the cot.

  • Do not put your baby on a water bed or bean bag.

  • Use a clean, firm, well-fitting mattress.

  • Quilts, duvets, pillows, soft toys and cot bumpers in the cot are not recommended.
