Why is the Tuutu Baby Box white inside?

How long can the baby use the box to sleep in?

How should I place my baby in the box?
Place the box on a flat steady surface before putting your baby in it. Your baby should be placed in the middle of the box with his/her feet touching the end of the box. We recommend following the Safe Sleep Guidelines as below at all times:
• Sleep baby on the back from birth, not on the tummy or side unless advised differently by medical practitioner.
• Sleep baby with head and face uncovered (do not place doonas / duvets, pillows, lamb’s wool, or soft toys inside the Tuutu Baby Box).
• Do not expose baby to tobacco smoke before and after birth.
• Provide a safe sleeping space for your baby night and day.
• Sleep baby in their own safe sleeping place in the same room as an adult caregiver for the first six to twelve months.
