  Testing: Some important precautions to prevent SID

  Mary-Jay Health and Education

  Test

  Place infants on their backs to go to sleep on a firm surface, and don't have a lot of excessive bedding that little faces or noses can easily get caught in, which will compromise breathing.

  Move stuffed animals out of the bed, and make sure all sheets and bedding are well tucked in on all sides.

  Avoid heavy wrapping or overheating of your baby, and keep their room at a temperature at which they'll be comfortable in just a couple of layers of clothing.

  The safest place for a baby to sleep is in their own crib in the parent's bedroom, or somewhere where you can easily check on them frequently.

  Don't share a bed with your baby during sleep.

  Avoid exposure to tobacco smoke before and after birth. I can't stress this enough. Smoking always rears its ugly head with a lot of things that can go wrong with babies, including SIDS.
