Protect Your Baby From SIDS - Halo Innovations

 
From now until Mother’s Day, Halo Innovations is running a campaign on Facebook to spread the word about ways to protect babies from SIDS.
There’s no better gift for Mother’s Day than peace of mind that your baby will sleep safely.  This is why Halo is encouraging Facebook users to learn about safe sleep with a Test Your Safe Sleep IQ quiz and send Safe Sleep Tips to their family and friends.

Share these safety tips with everyone who cares for your baby to help reduce the risk of SIDS.
 
Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
Use a crib that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snuggly and is covered with only a
tight-fitting crib sheet.

Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.

Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.

Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.

Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep
skins etc.)

Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.

Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.
