Gold Safe Certified by Cribs for Kids
Every year in the United States, thousands of babies die suddenly and unexpectedly. These deaths are called SUID, which stands for “Sudden Unexpected Infant Death.” At Sanford Children’s Hospital Sioux Falls, we’ve worked hard to ensure your infant will sleep safely during his or her stay.
Cribs for Kids gives hospital certification to programs that have successfully reduced hazardous risks to infants while they sleep. These hospitals are committed to exercising best practices and to education about infant sleep safety.
Keep your baby safe when you bring him or her home. Create a safe sleeping environment for your infant by taking these steps:
- Always use a firm sleep surface that is covered by a fitted sheet. This could be a crib, bassinet, portable crib or play yard that conforms to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s safety standards.
- Place babies on their backs to sleep, both at night and for naps.
- Keep soft objects like pillows, blankets and toys out of the sleeping area.
- Your baby should sleep without anyone (either a parent or anyone else) in his or her sleeping area.
- Do not let your baby sleep in an adult bed, on a couch or on a chair.
- Keep your baby’s sleep area in the same room where you sleep for his or her first 6 to 12 months.
