CONI - Care of the Next Infant

The Care of the Next Infant (CONI ) programme was set up by the Lullaby Trust in 1988 and is run in partnership with the NHS. Families who have suffered the sudden and unexpected death of a baby are often very anxious when they come to have another baby.

The CONI programme provides specialist advice, information and support to health professionals who in turn support bereaved families with their subsequent babies and help them to enjoy the first year of their babies life .

CONI PLUS offers similar help to other families who may have special reason to be anxious about their baby. They may, for example: be close relatives of a baby that has suffered a sudden infant death, have lost a baby to causes other than sudden infant death or be parents whose babies have suffered an apparently life threatening event (ALTE).

The Lullaby Trust provides expert advice on safer sleep for babies, supports bereaved families and raises awareness on sudden infant death.
