Watch Time 1:13 minutes
Life with a new baby can bring a mix of emotions - fear of your baby's safety while they sleep shouldn't be one of them. You and your child both need plenty of sleep in the early days! That's why it so important to use safe sleep practices with your little one. Hear from a mom of four, Taryn Newton, on how she navigated safe sleep and practiced rooming-sharing with her youngest.
Four Easy Steps to Practice Safe Sleep
Safe Sleep Best Practices
Alone and in a crib
Babies should sleep alone in a crib with no bumper pads, bedding, pillows, or toys.
On their back
Babies should sleep on their back, not their side or their tummy.
In the room with you
They should be in the same room with you for 6–12 months, but not in the same bed. Share your room, not your bed.
Nearby for convenience
Having baby nearby helps with breastfeeding convenience, building an emotional bond, and peace of mind for parents.
