- Always place your baby on his or her back to sleep, for naps and at night
- Keep soft objects, toys, and loose bedding out of your baby’s sleep area
- Dress your baby in light sleep clothing, such as a one-piece sleeper and do not use a blanket
- Do not smoke or let anyone smoke around your baby
- Baby should not sleep in an adult bed, on a couch, or on a chair, alone, with you or with anyone else
