To reduce the risk of cot death:

  • Place your baby on the back to sleep
  • Cut smoking in pregnancy – fathers too!
  • Do not let anyone smoke in the same room as your baby
  • Do not let your baby get too hot
  • Keep your baby’s head uncovered – place your baby with feet to the foot of the cot, to prevent wriggling down under the covers
  • If your baby is unwell, seek medical advice promptly
