running the make command, speifying jobs

From the man page of make:-
-j is used to specify the number of jobs simultaneuosly. An infinite number of jobs is used if no number of jobs is given

... I ran make -j foo and my 1GB RAM/ 3Gb of swap was swallowed within minutes!
Is the only --safe-- way of running this to just have j = number of CPU+1
