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

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 info@littlelullaby.org.uk.

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