Safe Sleep and Infant Sleep

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and caring for your baby - if you have a young baby, continue to follow public health advice:

Continue to breastfeed your baby if you are doing so.

It is important that you continue to follow safer sleep advice to lower the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). If you show symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), try not to cough or sneeze on your baby.

Make sure they are in their own separate sleep space such as a cot or Moses basket If your baby is unwell with a cold or fever don’t be tempted to wrap them up more than usual.

Babies need fewer layers to lower their body temperature. Click here for more advice on temperature. Always seek medical advice if you are worried about your baby – either linked to coronavirus (COVID-19) or any other health issue. If you have questions about safer sleep contact our information line on 0808 802 6869 or email
