Sleep safe

The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (FSID) recommends placing your baby in the ‘feet-to-foot’ position for safety. This means laying him down to sleep at the bottom of the cot, with his feet against the end. Sheets and blankets should cover your little one no further than up to his shoulders, and his head should be uncovered. If your little one is prone to kicking covers off, try a sleeping bag instead. Duvet quilts and pillows are not recommended for use until your baby is over 1 year.
