How can I keep my baby safe from cot death?

During the first six months of life, infants are at particular risk of dying while sleeping. Sudden infant death is a harrowing experience and a constant worry for any parent. Adopting a safe sleep position will help reduce the chances of sudden infant death syndrome and suffocation during sleep. The safest sleep position for baby is: on the back (for short naps as well as longer sleep periods); in a smoke-free environment; in the same room with another person; on a firm surface; with feet at or near the foot of the bed, and; with no other objects in the bed.
