The safest place for your baby to sleep is in the room where you sleep... but not in your bed, and with careful consideration of other risks.
SIDS is the leading cause of death for infants between 1 month and 12 months of age.
You can reduce your baby’s risk of dying from SIDS by talking to those who care for your baby -- including child care providers, babysitters, family, and friends -- about placing your baby to sleep on his or her back during naps and at night.
The crib or bassinet should be free from toys, soft bedding, blankets, and pillows.
Dr. Corinn Cross joins host Melanie Cole to discuss the best ways to ensure your child has a good and safe night's sleep.
