A pamphlet for parents and caregivers from the United Nations Children’s Fund’s (UNICEF) baby-friendly initiative. While this pamphlet is geared toward a UK audience and uses some terms and concepts that may not be relevant to US readers, it is still very useful. Information on sleeping positions for your baby, important safety considerations if you are thinking about co-sleeping, and more. While reading, it is worthwhile to examine how these recommendations may vary regionally and culturally. There are many safe and healthy ways to raise a baby with love and care, and this may look different from family to family, community to community.
