cuddling with your baby
study proves that cuddling with your baby early and often has huge benefits in
physical, emotional and brain development.
- research shows that babies, who are carried in a ring sling
- cry less
- sleep more peacefully
- nurse better and gain weight better
- enjoy better digestion and even helps for colic and reflux babies
- regulates baby´s system, including temperature, heart and respiration rates
skin-to-skin contact increases oxytocin, that yummy hormone that gets released when we´re in love. and so babies who are carried are more content, less fussy and colicky, settle quicker and sleep more deeply
for mother, having baby against your body helps balance your hormones, making breastfeeding easier and post-natal depression less likely.
eye contact with your little bundle makes it easy to bond with your baby and respond to every feeling he/she has.
