Red Nose recommends babies sleep on the back and on a firm, clean, well-fitting mattress that is in good condition and placed flat (not tilted or elevated). There is no evidence to show that there is an increased risk of SIDS for babies who sleep on a second hand mattress providing that baby: sleeps on the back, sleeps on a flat, firm, clean, well-fitting mattress that is in good condition, sleeps with no bedding covering the face or head, and is not exposed to tobacco toxins before birth or after.
