The Lullaby Trust has produced several factsheets, infographics and other materials that can help advise young parents about SIDS and safer sleep for babies.
These resources can be downloaded below. Alternatively, you can order them directly from The Lullaby Trust website.
You can help spread the word about Little Lullaby by downloading our promotional materials including flyers and business cards.

The Lullaby Trust have developed a series of factsheets to help parents and carers with some of the key questions we are asked about our advice. If you have a question about a piece of advice that does not yet have a factsheet or you have any other query, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- SIDS and smoking
- Bed sharing
- Back to sleep
- Mattresses, bedding and cots
Please note these factsheets are designed to support our key advice and do not go into detail about the research behind the advice. The Lullaby Trust’s Evidence Base goes into detail about the research into SIDS that has informed our advice.
Unicef baby publications
The Lullaby Trust has worked with Unicef in the wording on two publications to support families and professionals with the challenge of addressing co-sleeping given the association with SIDS. You might be interested in reading the two Unicef Baby Friendly publications, which are both endorsed by The Lullaby Trust.
