The Magic of Human Touch
Human Touch Makes Baby Care Magic
Human Touch Creates Magic
Holding your baby, wearing your baby, stroking your baby’s downy head and tender skin are ways you can provide loving human touch in your baby care.
Intentionally touching your baby is beneficial for your baby because it promotes healthy growth and development, both mentally and physically.
When you provide abundant human touch for your newborn you are giving your baby the long-term gifts of:
independence (less clingy)
healthy emotional development (less aggressive behavior)
healthy body development (newborns held skin to skin regulate breathing and heart rate better, maintain normal body temperature better, and have fewer infections)
Abundant human touch in baby care is proven to have a positive influence … like magic.
For you and yours,
