Are There Specific Baby Care Products That Reduce the Risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy?

There is no scientific research evidence that has convinced Red Nose that any specific baby care product reduces the risk of SIDS or sleeping accidents.

However, research does tell us that the safest way to sleep baby is:

1) Sleep baby on the back from birth, not on the tummy or side

2) Sleep baby with head and face uncovered

3) Keep baby smoke free before birth and after

4) Provide a Safe Sleeping Environment night and day (Safe cot, Safe mattress, Safe bedding)

5) Sleep baby in their own safe sleeping place in the same room as an adult caregiver for the first six to twelve months

6) Breastfeed baby
