Congratulations on giving birth to your wonderful baby!

We know that you and other family members want what is best for your baby.

Remember: it is okay to have questions about how to take care of your baby!

Here are some very important steps to keep your baby safer:

  1. Always place the baby on the back to sleep. Back sleeping is the safest sleeping position for babies under year one.

  2. Close but separate - Keep your baby’s sleep area close to you but separate from where you and others sleep.

  3. Firm mattress and alone – remove all soft surfaces, including toys, pillows, blankets, and wedges from the crib. Please ask others not to place any loose items in the baby’s crib.
