In skin-to-skin contact on Mom’s chest at birth, baby feels SAFE. She opens her eyes, and bonds with her parents. She sleeps and grows better in that environment when skin to skin is continued during the post partum period.. Evidence of skin to skin on baby’s physical growth is well known but now In Grow Your Baby’s Brain, the research reveals that the brain growth is stunningly affected. With skin to skin care, more breast milk is produced, the best food for human BRAIN growth.
This calm start to life makes mom and baby unstressed. It sets the pattern for healthy and secure children and joyful parenting. Why skin-to-skin & learning baby’s cues are so important to encourage the communication and desire to keep one’s baby close. Every parent wants their baby to grow in brain function and this shows an easy way to facilitate the process.
