Parents need to be present in the NICU with their baby as soon as they can to provide an effective, more kinder and gentler environment in Kangaroo Care. They should hold as long as they can, no less than one hour which is the length of one full sleep cycle. Many sessions a day if necessary and with minimal interruptions, as recommended by The American Academy of Pediatrics, The Academy of Breast Feeding Medicine, UNICEF, the World Health Organization, the Neonatal Resuscitation Program, and the United States Institute of Kangaroo Care.
"Best Practice is Kangaroo Care as soon as possible, for as long as possible, and as uninterrupted as possible"
(Nyqvist et al., 2010, May Acta Paediatrica)
