The Scottish Department of Health has produced this leaflet about reducing the risk of cot death. This well-designed leaflet explains the safest way for your baby to sleep (on their back, in a cot beside the bed), information on maintaining an even temperature, what blankets or covers to use, the risks associated with smoking, drinking and drugs, how to use a dummy at night and the beneficial effects of breastfeeding.

The leaflet is endorsed by the Scottish Cot Death Trust and UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative.
