Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the term for sudden death of an infant under the age of one year that remains unexplained after a complete investigation. It is not known what causes SIDS, however several sleeping methods have been thought to help prevent SIDS. These methods will be used at Lil' Cubs:
All infants less than one year of age will be placed on their backs to sleep.
Cribs will be kept clear of fluffy loose bedding and other soft items.
Infants may use a sleep sack if provided by the parent.
Once a child has been placed on their back for nap and they are able to roll onto their stomach/side the child will not be moved back to their back. A request for alternative sleeping positions must be accompanied by a signed and dated physician stating the reason for the request. When a child begins care at Lil’ Cubs under the age of one, the parent will be given a “sleeping policy” which should be read, signed and returned to the center.
