Safe Sleep Update - 6/7/2021


The AAP recognizes Rock 'n Plays, Rock 'n Glides, and Soothe 'n Plays as unsafe sleep surfaces due to infant deaths due to babies sleeping on these surfaces. For safe sleep, the AAP recommends:

- Always placing baby on his/her back on a firm sleep surface (ie crib or bassinet)

- No soft bedding, this includes: toys, pillows, blankets, and crib bumpers

- Keeping baby’s crib or bassinet in the parents’ room for at least the first 6 months, and preferably the first 12 months. -Avoid baby’s exposure to smoke, alcohol, and elicit drugs
