Clustering care for 20 minutes.
Other: Clustering care
During 20 minutes, preterm infants will receive a cluster care with 2 minutes of hand containment.
No Intervention: Control
Standard care non clustered.
- Physiological stability (heart rate, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation) [ Time Frame: The physiological stability will be measured for 70 minutes. ]The physiological stability will be measured with the SCRIP score. The Stability of the cardiorespiratory system in premature infants is a scale, in which a score of 0 means major physiological instability and a score of 6 means a physiological stability. For every single parameter there's three grades from severe instability (0 points) to minor instability (1 point) to perfect stability (2 points).
