Infant Safe Sleep

Learn how to keep sleep time safe for infants.

Babies depend on parents and caregivers to make sure they are safe when they sleep. For a safe and secure sleep environment, place babies on their backs near you, but on a separate, firm surface that’s free of blankets and pillows. This practice reduces the number of infant deaths during sleep. Several state agencies are available to assist and educate parents, childcare providers, doctors, and nurses about safe sleep.
