Safe Sleep

One of the most important and first aspects of sleep I discuss with parents is around safety.

Keeping your little bundles of joy safe during sleep is very important to me.  Please take note of the following safe sleep guidelines to avoid the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) due to unsafe sleep situations.  Guidelines for safe sleep are outlined by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Public Health Agency of Canada. 

Factors that help reduce the risk of SIDS

  • Always place your little one to sleep on their back for nights and naps.
  • Always place your little one to sleep alone on a firm sleep surface (crib, cradle or bassinet) with snug secure sheets.
  • Breastfeeding (if possible) is recommended.
  • Ensure that the sleep space is free from items that could pose a suffocation risk. This includes but is not limited too: blankets, pillows, comforters, bumper pads, stuffed toys.
  • Ensure you are taking your little one for regular check-ups with a medical professional
  • Do not allow anyone to smoke near your little one or their sleep environment.
  • Make sure your little one is not too hot when they are sleeping.
  • Room share for the first 12 months.

Additional Safety Tips

Always ensure that the car seat is placed in a stroller system or in the car. 

Stationary car seats put infants at risk of SIDS due to the positioning of their heads/necks.  In a stroller system or in the car the car seat is angled at the proper degree to avoid a hazard.

Please read safety guidelines associated with your carrier if you are using your carrier for naps.
