eWellness: Keep your baby safe and healthy - 4 tips from the CDC


Dr KK Aggarwal    12 January 2018

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that there are about 3,500 sleep-related deaths among US babies each year.

These 4 simple sleep tips from the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) can help keep your baby safe and healthy:

  1. Babies should always be placed on their back to sleep — for naps and at night.
  2. Use a firm sleep surface, such as a mattress in a safety-approved crib.
  3. Keep soft bedding such as blankets, pillows, bumper pads, and soft toys out of baby’s sleep area
  4. Have baby share your room, not your bed.
