Advice for Grandparents has been issued as an extension of the LSCB "Safer Sleep for Baby" campaign.
We recognise that grandparents play a key role in caring for their grandchildren and want to ensure the key messages are accessible in order to:
- Enable grandparents to support their own children in following the advice in order to provide the safest sleep arrangements as possible;
- Encourage grandparents to follow the advice when caring for their grandchild; and
- Highlight current and up-to-date safety advice for caring for babies, which has changed over decades and generations.
Below is a leaflet and poster containing our Safer Sleep information and guidance:
If you are a grandparent, and would like further advice, you should speak to your son or daughter who can seek advice from their Health Visitor.
