Having a new addition to the family is an exciting time! The closer the time gets to the arrival of the new baby can start to get a little hectic, especially for first time parents. There are so many things to consider and figure out before the arrival of the precious new addition. One of those major concerns is safe-sleep basics for babies.
Even if you already have children you will notice that a lot can change from one child to the next. So it is still important to do the research about the newest safety standards to keep your little one safe.
One of the most important steps you can take to ensure your baby’s safety is placing him/her on his/her back to sleep. They should also sleep on a firm mattress with a tight fitting sheet that is free of pillows, toys, or soft bedding. There are some instances where a doctor may suggest sleeping on the stomach, but unless it is recommended by the doctor it is best to stay on the safe side. These are the simplest steps you can take to ensure safe sleeping.
