Following a safer sleep routine on holiday

Home / Blog / Safer sleep for babies / Following a safer sleep routine on holiday

Whilst you’re on holiday, it’s important to make sure you still follow a safer sleep

You can reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) by sleeping your baby on their back on a firm, flat, mattress for every sleep day and night. It’s important that this routine is followed on holiday.

If you sleep your baby in a travel cot, the mattress is often thinner and can feel harder than a traditional cot. However, don’t be tempted to put folded blankets or a quilt under your baby.

Also, ensure that the travel cot isn’t against a radiator, in direct sunlight, and is out of reach of blind cords and hazards.

If you have any questions or queries about following a safer sleep routine on holiday for your baby or safer sleep advice, please feel free to get in touch at

You can find more information about sleeping your baby safely and reducing the risk of SIDS on our safer sleep for babies advice pages.
