Babies sleep on their back
The safest sleeping position for your baby is on their back. Position them lower down the cot to prevent them wriggling down and under the covers.
Have your baby sleep in your room
It is recommended that your baby sleeps in your room for the first six months after birth, ideally in a Moses basket or cot.
Monitor room temperature
16-20 degrees is the ideal temperature range for your baby’s room, helping them sleep without being too hot or too cool.
Avoid sharing bed after smoking
If you have been smoking, or even drinking alcohol, avoid sharing your bed with your baby and have them sleep in their cot.
Use a firm mattress
Our cot mattress is the ideal firmness for your baby’s sleep and comes with a comfortable, washable cover.
Consider breast feeding
Although not directly related to your babies sleeping, breast feeding is known to reduce the chances of SIDS (also referred to as cot death).
Keep the cot clear
Reduce the amount of clutter in the cot, including toys and extra covers to prevent accidents and reduce the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).
Do not cover your baby’s head
By positioning your baby lower down their cot and keeping the cot free from clutter, they will be less likely to have their head covered.
