If you plan to care for infants:

  • always place infants to sleep on their backs;
  • avoid placing infants on sleeping surfaces that are too soft like sofas, bedding, pillows, or soft crib mattresses;
  • be sure infants are not surrounded with covers or blankets; and
  • follow the feeding instructions given by infant’s parents.
