Within my job I am a keen advocate of safe sleep for babies. Around 5 babies each day die for no known reason. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) cannot always be prevented, there is not enough research out there yet to know what exactly causes an infant to suddenly die, devastating whole families.
There is however some key things that parents can do to make sleep safer.
The Lullaby Trust is a great website with a lot of information for new and experienced parents. Guidelines change regularly and this charity carries the most up to date facts and figures. New equipment, bedding and toys are always becoming available and The Lullaby Trust is happy to answer any questions you may have.
Check out the website here: www.lullabytrust.org.uk
Here is a short video with the basics of reducing the risk of SIDS, share with as many people as possible!
