Safe Sleep Week 2024

The theme for this year’s Safe Sleep Week was Keep it Simple Keep them Safe.

4–10 March 2024

Safe Sleep Week provided practical advice to parents, caregivers, educators and health professionals to help reduce the risk of sudden and unexpected death in infancy (including SIDS and fatal sleep accidents).

Throughout the week, we explored such topics as:

• Why you should always sleep baby on their back

• Why baby’s head and face should be uncovered during sleep

• How to create a safe sleep environment

• Why sleeping baby in your room is best

• How health professionals can better communicate with families around the Six Safe Sleep Guidelines

• Breastfeeding and its benefits

Safe Sleep Week 2024 ran across Red Nose’s social media channels and websites.
