Safe Sleep Week 2024

Sign up for our FREE Safe Sleep Week events. Safe Sleep Week will be held from 4 to 10 March 2024. Safe Sleep Week is Red Nose’s annual national awareness campaign to help save little lives.


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:

• 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 run across Red Nose’s social media channels and website and include a FREE online event.
