Alaska babies die every year from unsafe sleeping conditions. Many of these deaths are preventable.
It's as simple as A, B, C.
Safest Sleep - Babies are SAFEST when they sleep:
Alone – Nothing in the crib with baby, not even crib bumper pads .
On their Backs – Babies breathe better and are less likely to choke when sleeping on their backs, except those with rare medical problems.
In their Cribs – Cribs should be safety approved. Check the Consumer Product Safety website at spsc.gov for more information on cribs and play yards
