Providing a safe sleeping environment for infants can prevent death. There are positive steps that can be taken to make sleeping environments safer for infants.
When using bedding, put baby's feet at the end of the cot then only bring bedding up to the chest.
When using a sleeping bag, make sure it is the right size for your baby. You should place baby's feet at the end of the cot and tuck any excess sleeping bag underneath the mattress.

Don’t let babies sleep on couches, bean bags, pillows or even baby capsules placed on the floor.
Keep the cot or bassinette away from curtain/blind cords – young children have been strangled by dangling curtain and blind cords.

A baby sleep bag is a safe option for baby to sleep as it eliminates bedding - reducing the risk of suffocation, keeps baby at a safe temperature and is easy to use.
