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.
Safe sleeping advice and guidance is routinely given to parents by midwives and health visitors.
Please see the below safe sleep messages:

Routine is important in reducing the risk of Sudden Infant Deaths (SIDS); therefore it is advised that parents keep the same sleeping routine even when they are away from home: for more information download Safer sleep away from home.
