The safest place for a newborn to sleep for the first six months is in a crib in the parents’ room.

Put your baby to sleep on a firm, flat mattress that fits tightly to the edge of the crib or cot.

The room temperature is important as babies cannot control their own body temperature.

The ideal temperature should be between 16-18 degrees Celsius (60-65 degrees Fahrenheit). If you are comfortable in the room wearing light clothes then it will be comfortable for your baby.
