Alone. It is safest for baby to sleep alone in a crib without toys, blankets, pillows or anything soft.
Back. Place baby on his or her back on a firm sleep surface such as a crib or bassinet.
Crib. A crib or bassinet is the safest place for baby to sleep. You should share your room, but not your sleep surface. A baby should never sleep on a couch.
