We know putting your baby to sleep on their stomach can increase the risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
But it's not the only unsafe sleep habit parents need to watch out for.
According to the Journal Pediatrics, children are twice as likely to die from SIDS when they sleep in the bed with you.
If a baby is very young between two and four months these rates go up dramatically.
Here are some recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics to prevent SIDS.
Babies should always sleep on their backs, and always use a firm sleep surface.
Every baby should sleep in his or her own crib.
No pillows, blankets or bumper pads.
Bring the baby to bed for cuddling and feeding, but return the baby to their crib when you're ready to go back to sleep.
