While nobody knows what causes SIDS, the Edwards & Co Carry Cot has been designed in line with global recommendations for safe sleep. This includes ventilation points (vent holes under the base, through the mattress), a firm flat mattress and flat side walls. When using it inside, we strongly recommend putting the bassinet on a flat and firm surface, with the canopy down and cover off. The vent holes under the base should be open. No toys or obstructions should be placed in the bassinet. A room that is not too hot or cold is best i.e. 18-20 degrees.
We recommend familiarising yourself with the Ministry of Health guidelines for safe sleep here https://www.health.govt.nz/your-health/pregnancy-and-kids/first-year/helpful-advice-during-first-year/safe-sleep
