Hello, I keep seeing a mother in my pregnancy group posting massively unsafe SIDS risk sleeping environments. I'm talking - candles, multiple toys and loose blankets in the bed right near the babies head. A few other mothers and myself have voiced our concerns. Is there anything else we can do? This has happened on multiple occassions.

Red Nose guidelines are based on evidence and since safe sleeping campaigns were introduced the rate of sudden and unexpected infant death has dropped by 85%. Unfortunately,  some babies still die.

Refer your friend to Red Nose’s messages and the information on our web site, for example about keeping baby’s head and face uncovered. See the following pages:
