SACRAMENTO COUNTY
ABC’S OF INFANT SAFE SLEEPING
A for Alone




Babies should always sleep alone in their own crib or
bassinette.
Co-sleeping with other children or even parents can be
dangerous – others in bed with your baby can
accidentally suffocate them by simply lying too close to
their mouth or nose, or by rolling onto them while
asleep.
Your baby should not sleep with stuffed animals,
pillows or blankets — these soft items could
accidentally fall over your baby’s face and suffocate
them.
A blanket sleeper or sleep sack is enough to keep your
baby comfortable.

B for Back



Babies who sleep on their backs are much less likely to die of
infant sleep-related deaths.
According to doctors, “back sleeping” will not increase a baby’s
risk of choking.
Many of our own mothers and grandmothers were taught to put
a baby on their tummy to sleep — so you’ll need to gently
remind them that to prevent infant sleep-related deaths, it’s
“back to sleep.”

C for Crib



Cribs and bassinets are the safest places for
babies to sleep – as long as you keep them safe!
To make breastfeeding easier keep a crib or
bassinet next to your bed and always put your
baby back to sleep afterwards.
Cribs should be free of pillows, bumpers,
stuffed toys, extra blankets or anything that
could accidentally cover your babies face and
suffocate them. A blanket sleeper or sleep sack
is sufficient.
Make sure that the crib mattress is firm and fits
snuggly with no space between the mattress
and the side of the crib, where the baby could
become trapped.
Unlike firm crib mattresses, today’s adult beds
are soft and can cause babies to suffocate.

INFANT SLEEP-RELATED DEATHS:
A QUICK AND SILENT KILLER

Infant sleep-related deaths are the leading cause of death
for babies one month to one year of age.

Most babies that have an infant sleep-related death appear
to be healthy prior to death.

Infant sleep-related deaths occur in all socio-economic,
racial and ethnic groups. African American and Native
American babies are 2-3 times more likely than Caucasian
babies to have an infant sleep-related death.
