Healthy babies placed to sleep on their back are less likely to choke than tummy sleeping babies. In fact, sleeping baby on the back actually provides airway protection.

The best way to achieve this is to ensure that the baby’s feet are at the bottom of the cot, so that the baby can’t slip down under the sheet or blankets. Use lightweight blankets that can be tucked in securely. 

Our Cot sheets are designed with this in mind and the top sheet is just the right length to suit sleeping babies on their backs at the bottom of the cot.
