THE SAFE SLEEP 7
If you are breastfeeding, meet all seven for safer bedsharing.
#1 No smoking in the home or outside
#2 Sober adults: no alcohol, no drowsy medications
#3 Breastfeeding day and night
#4 Healthy baby who is full term
#5 Baby on back and face up
#6 No sweat: baby in light clothing, no swaddling
#7 Safe surface: no soft mattress, no extra pillows, no toys, no tight or heavy covers. Clear of strings and cords. Gaps firmly filled: use rolled towels or baby blankets.
