At the age of one month, there still aren't regular sleep cycles and your baby can sleep for 16-17 hours a day in short segments of one hour. As your child grows, they will need less sleep.
There are a few recommendations to create a safe sleeping environment and to lower the chances of SIDS:
- Using a crib with a "standard mark" from the SII with a firm mattress and tight sheets.
- Place the crib in your room, but make sure your baby doesn't sleep with you in your bed.
- Place your baby on his back, not on his side or stomach.
- Make sure the room is ventilated and keep the room at a nice temperature of 22-24 degrees Celsius. Dress your baby in comfortable pyjamas.
- Keep soft object away, such as pillows or dolls, to lower the chances of choking.
- It is recommended to use a pacifier at bed time.
