The Need To Be Touched

The bond of mother to child is a natural one, that nevertheless needs to be reinforced and strengthened with daily cuddling and touching of baby.

Even before you leave the hospital, the pediatric team will show you how to give your baby a massage. Touching your baby assures him/her that you care., especially if you do it gently while talking to him/her in a soft, soothing voice.

Cuddling your baby close to your body can also help quiet him/her down after a feeding. The warmth of your closeness can also bring up air and relieve colic pain.

Don't hesitate to hold baby from time to time. It won't spoil his/her temper and senses will develop more quickly through this daily stimulus.
