ABC's of Safe Sleep :

By Let Mommy Sleep. March 26, 2021

Since the Back to Sleep campaign began in 1994, it has become widely known that babies sleeping on their backs instead of their bellies helps reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

There are additional ways to be sure newborns and infants sleep safely, and an example of what a safe sleep environment looks like can be seen here on the National Institute of Health’s website. A good summary however is to also remember the ABC’s of Safe Sleep above.

And one last tip -as NationwideChildrens.org reminds us the "S" in ABC'S can stand for smoking...newborns "exposed to smoking, either while in the womb or after birth, have a higher risk of SIDS than infants who have not been exposed."
