290 babies die unexpectedly before their first birthday every year.
No-one wants to think that the worst will happen to their baby but it's important that parents and carers know the dangers and what they can do about them.
Do you know your six steps?
Safer Sleep for Baby focuses on six easy to follow steps which you can follow any time you put your baby down to sleep. See our video to view the six steps to safer sleep and to help reduce the risks to your baby.
You can ask your midwife, health visitor or your doctor about some of these tips or about how your baby sleeps. You can also call the FSID national helpline if you need to talk to somebody.
