Nine Months : Cot Death

A few babies die every year unexpectedly and suddenly in their cots. This is known as cot death or the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Although there is no clear explanation, a few precautions are known to reduce the risk of cot deaths.


  • Always put babies to sleep on their backs as this is regarded as the safest position by doctors

  • Place your baby in the feet-to-foot position in the cot

  • Don't let your baby get too hot or cold.

  • Don't allow anyone to smoke around your baby or in the baby's room.

  • Don't use a pillow for under two year olds as this could smother them.

  • Remove all packaging from the mattress.
