SIDS is rare, so don't let worrying about it stop you enjoying your baby's first few months. Follow the advice below to reduce the risks as much as possible:
- Put your sleeping baby down on her back every time you put her down to sleep - naps, at night, or any time.
- Keep your sleeping baby close, but not in your bed, just return her to her own cradle, bassinet, or crib when you're ready to sleep.
- Breastfeed as long as you can as some studies show that breastfeeding may lower the risk of SIDS by 50%.
- Keep your baby from overheating by dressing her in light, comfortable clothes at a room temperature that's comfortable for an adult.
