ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Experts at St. Louis Children’s Hospital shared ways to prevent sleeping hazards following President Joe Biden’s signing of the Safe Sleep for Babies Act.

The act bans the sale of crib bumpers and inclined sleepers known to be harmful to infants, and even linked to dozens of deaths.

Experts at St. Louis Children’s Hospital told News 4 preventing sleeping hazards is as simple as ABCD:

  • A: Infants should sleep alone
  • B: Infants should sleep on their back
  • C: Infants should sleep in a crib
  • D: Don’t smoke around the infant
