Safe sleep practices

Where is the safest place for my baby to sleep?

The safest place for a baby to sleep is alone in a crib. You can also place your baby to sleep in a crib, cradle or bassinet BESIDE your own bed. Known as room-sharing, this may be particularly appealing to mothers who breastfeed and want their baby to be near them without sharing the same bed surface.

Products made for children sleeping in the same bed as the parents are not recommended by Health Canada.
