Is your child safe at sleep time?
Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada recommend room sharing for
the first six months of a baby's life. Bed sharing is not safe because of
choking hazards and that the baby can fall off and be seriously hurt.
Here are some important tips for a safe sleep:
- Make sure your baby sleeps on his or her back, in a crib, cradle or bassinet.
- Avoid the use of loose bedding or soft objects in your baby's sleeping area to avoid suffocation (comforters, heavy blankets, pillows, stuffed toys and bumper pads).
- Place your baby's sleeping area so that hazards like windows, patio doors, lamps, candles, electrical plugs, corded baby monitors, extension cords and small objects are out of your child's reach.
