Safe Sleep Week 2024

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

4–10 March 2024

Join us as we explore the safe sleep guidelines, why they are important, and how new parents can implement them in their home.

Safe Sleep Week provides 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 will explore such topics as:

  • Keeping it simple, to keep them safe
  • 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
  • plus breastfeeding and its benefits

Safe Sleep Week 2024 will be running across Red Nose’s social media channels and website and will include FREE online events.

We are excited to offer the following FREE events
