Babies are fragile and everyone has a responsibility to keep them safe from harm.
As a parent or carer, looking after a newborn baby can sometimes be challenging. Babies rely on you to care for them, but they can't easily let you know what they want or need. It is important for you to be able to cope when things get tough and be able to respond to your baby. Our Safer Sleep and All Babies Cry pages offer useful tips and information on keeping your baby safe.
