Nursery Safety Tips

Do
  • Place your baby on their back to sleep, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Consult with your Doctor.
  • Use a crib that meets current safety standards.
  • Use a firm mattress that fits snuggly in the crib. Cover the mattress with only a tight-fitting sheet.
  • Use a sleep sack or other type of sleepover instead of blankets to keep you rbaby warm and safe at night.
  • Use a portable crib and/or playard if a traditional crib is unavailable.
  • Share a room. Place your baby's separate sleep space, like JPMA certified bassinet, near your bed to protect your baby and make nursing easier.
Don't
  • Don't place your baby on their side or stomach. These positions are not safe.
  • Don't use pillows, blankets, comforters, bulky bumpers, or other soft items in the crib.
  • Don't sleep with your baby in a bed, couch or armchair.
  • Don't place your baby to sleep on top of any soft surgace, like adult beds, water beds, pillows, cushions, comforter and/or sheepskins.
