Baby Sleep Guidelines 

Baby Sleep Definitions and Statistics

Are the guidelines being followed by moms?

  • Some estimates say that as many as 50 percent to 60 percent of parents sleep with their infant children.

  • Only 31% of moms always or often used separate approved sleep surfaces.

  • Out of 34,000 moms surveyed, only 32% used cribs or other safe sleep surfaces.

  • Among 3,260 surveyed mothers, 59% intended to follow the safe-sleep recommendation. But that number dropped to only 45% in actual practice.
