To prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Health Visitors complete safer sleep assessments which involve asking all parents for permission to directly observe where and how your baby sleeps.
They will provide information and guidance on safe sleep practices, such as recommended room temperature, bedding, and sleep-aids. The most current information is vital due to the many unregulated sleep-aids available, which may pose a risk to your baby. Further information about safe sleep can be found at the Lullaby Trust.
