Never place your baby to sleep on a couch, sofa, or armchair.
Couches and armchairs are extremely dangerous places for infants. Sleeping on couches and armchairs places infants at very high risk of infant death, including SIDS, suffocation through entrapment or wedging between seat cushions, or overlay if another person is also sharing this surface. Therefore, parents and other caregivers should be especially cautious as to their wakefulness when feeding infants or lying with infants on these surfaces. Infants should never be placed on a couch or armchair for sleep.
