“Share a bedroom with parents, but not the same sleeping surface, preferably until the baby turns 1 but at least for the first six months”. “Place the baby on his or her back on a firm sleep surface such as a crib or bassinet with a tight-fitting sheet”
- Canadian Pedeatric Society:
“ For the first year of your baby’s life, the safest place to sleep is in the child’s own crib, on her back.” “Adult beds are not safe for babies”. “Place your baby to sleep on his back on a firm, flat surface”
