On behalf of James Dunne, Chair of the BSW Safeguarding Unborn Babies and Under 1s Steering Group, we have attached the safe sleep resources below. Learning from local and national case reviews, a vulnerability for children under one has been identified, including the risks when safe sleep if not followed. This can be a particular issue when away from home where safer sleep routines parents may have adopted can be disrupted. Local and national case reviews have identified an increased risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) when parents are out of routine in their sleeping arrangements, e.g., holidays, child staying with other relatives/friends.
Please find attached some useful resources about safe sleep:
