sleep safety over Christmas


According to the Infant Sleep Information Source (ISIS) infant deaths increase over Christmas and New Year holidays – this is often due to changes in sleeping environments.

Christmas can be a happy but chaotic time of visitors and visiting and of just one more drink so it can be useful to ensure that there is a:

  • safe place for your baby to sleep
  • sober  adult to look after your baby

And remember, if you have had a drink, don’t co-sleep because it might not be safe to do so.


Plan ahead and have a great Christmas
