1. Lay them on their back

You should always put your infant to sleep on their back, not their front or side.

Sleeping your baby on their back (also known as the supine position) for every sleep day and night is one of the most preventative measures you can take to ensure your baby is sleeping as securely as possible.

There is abundant evidence throughout the globe that laying your baby on its back at the start of every sleep or nap (day and night) decreases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome considerably (SIDS).

  1. Create a Rhythm 

Newborns sleep for 16 hours or more per day, but only for a few hours at a time. Although the pattern may be unpredictable at first, a more consistent sleep cycle will emerge as your baby develops and can go longer between feedings.

Sleeping a newborn on their front or side significantly raises the risk of SIDS.

You must constantly position your baby on their back as part of their usual sleep pattern; the risk of SIDS is especially significant for newborns who are sometimes placed on their front or side.

If your child flips onto their stomach,

Your baby will be able to find their sleeping position once they can transfer themselves from their back to their front and back again.

You may want to gently flip them back the first few times they roll onto their belly, but don’t feel obligated to stay up all night to check. Allow them to play on their tummies while awake to aid their growth, but keep an eye on them when they are on their front.
