Ensuring Safe Sleep for Infants

Safety is the most important factor when swaddling a baby. Here are the best ways to keep your baby safe at night and during nap time:

  • Alone — Parents and siblings should never sleep alongside the baby or in the same bed.
  • Back — The baby should be placed face up for the safest sleep.
  • Crib — Don’t allow the baby to sleep in your arms, in a swing, or on the couch. A crib is the safest place to snooze.

To easily recall these tips on safe sleep for infants, simply remember “ABC.” Keep in mind, swaddling should only be used for sleep.
