It's easy to make sure your baby sleeps safely, just follow the ABC's: Baby should sleep ALONE, on their BACK, and in a CRIB (or bassinet/play pen). And don't let smoke near your baby, especially during sleep!

Babies sleep safest when they sleep ALONE! That means no sleeping with mom or dad, brother or sister, or even with toys and blankets. All of these things put a baby at risk for suffocation and other harm during sleep.

An important part of safe sleep for infants is a smoke-free sleep space! If someone smokes around the area where your baby sleeps, smoke particles will be left on the bedding, and put baby at greater risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

The safest way to grow your family is by waiting at least 18 months between each pregnancy. By waiting, you'll have a lower risk of delivering too early or having a baby that is low birthweight.

You may be tempted to elect for labor to be induced early, but waiting until your baby decides to come on their own is the healthiest choice for most healthy pregnancies. It will be worth the wait to have a healthy, strong baby!
