Your baby needs to be on their back, the surface needs to be firm and flat with no pillows, soft toys, bumpers or objects they can roll onto and suffocate with .
Babies heads should not be covered and all wraps and blankets need to be firmly tucked or wrapped around the baby, it is better to dress your baby than to have too many covers.
