Read on to learn why yourbabyshouldalwaysbe sleeping on theback, and when yourtoddlercan sleep safely on thetummy.


  • You can help your baby to sound and safe sleep by:
  • Placing your baby flat on the back on a firm and flat surface for every sleep, day and night.
  • Trying to swaddle your baby in a blanket. This can help some babies feel safe, and secure.
  • Making sure your baby doesn’t get too hot.
  • Alternate the direction your baby lies in the crib to help prevent a flat head.
  • Not allowing your toddler to sleep on the tummy until he or she can roll over without your help.
  • Keep yourself updated on recommendations from the Danish Health Authority.
