• Remove loose materials—such as blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, and toys—from a baby’s crib or sleeping area.
• Babies can drown in just an inch of water, so NEVER leave an infant alone in or near a tub. That means
ignoring phone calls, text messages, doorbells, or other distractions. ALWAYS keep child within adult’s reach.
• All electrical cords and electronic devices—such as baby monitors, bottle warmers, and soothers—should be kept at least three feet away from the crib and child’s reach.
