Crib Safety Tips

Crib Safety Tips

 

A baby, newborn to 12 months, should be placed on its back to sleep. Use a firm, tight-fitting mattress in a crib that meets current safety standards. Only a mattress pad and/or waterproof pad and crib fitted sheet should be used between the sleeping baby and the crib mattress. Consider using a sleeper suit as an alternative to a blanket.  Pillows, plush animals, blankets and quilts are to be considered decorative only and should always be removed from the crib during sleep time and naptime.
