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
