Crib Safety

Each child has his/her own designated crib or cot. If an infant falls asleep during activities he or she is put in the crib. Infants are always placed in their own crib with clean sheets, on their backs-not their stomachs- to reduce the risk of SIDS.

The nonprofit organization Keeping Babies Safe,also provides crib and sleep safety information, safety tips, and product recall information to help keep babies safe from preventable injuries associated with unsafe cribs and unsafe sleep environments. VieSafe Sleep Environment for Babies, a video has been produced in partnership with CPSC and the American Academy of Pediatricsat www.keepingbabiessafe.org.

More information around crib standards and safety can be found on the online Crib Information Center at www.cpsc.gov/en/Safety-Education/Safety-Education-Centers/cribs.
