Feed your baby breast milk
Evidence shows that human milk reduces the risk of SIDS. The longer you give your baby breast milk, the more protection it gives.
- Breastfeed or feed your baby expressed breast milk. The AAP recommends breastfeeding as the sole source of nutrition for your baby for about 6 months.
- Even after you add solid foods to your baby’s diet, continue breastfeeding until they’re at least 12 months, or longer if you and your baby desire.
