Ensuring Safe Sleep for Babies

October is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Awareness Month, but parents should remember two things year-round to keep babies safe during sleep: babies should sleep alone and on their backs, a CHOC Children’s community educator tells CHOC Radio.

In podcast No. 36, Amy Frias outlines tips for parents to ensure their child stays safe while sleeping:

  • How to create a safe sleeping environment
  • What to do if the baby rolls onto their tummy

Printable tip sheets with information to keep children safe while sleeping are also available on CHOC’s website.
