Safe Sleep Tips for Babies from Halo

Back is Best for Baby’s Safest Sleep…
By following these simple steps, parents and caregivers can help their baby survive and thrive:

  • Place your baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and night time
  • Use a safety approved crib with a firm, tight-fitting mattress
  • Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers and positioners)
  • Use a SleepSack™ wearable blanket to replace loose blankets in your baby’s crib
  • DO NOT put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins, etc.)
  • Room sharing is safer than bed sharing
  • DO NOT dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature between 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit
  • DO NOT let anyone smoke around your baby or be in a room where someone has recently smoked
  • Educate relatives, baby sitters and other caregivers about these important safety tips
  • Tummy time is important for babies while they are awake and being supervised. Place your baby on his or her tummy for playtime to help strengthen their upper body muscles.
