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 email@example.com.
