Over 600 medical studies on the effects of human touch are proving what moms have always known. Hugs are important. In fact, more and more hospitals will tell you they are vital to the healthy development of your child. And the benefits of human touch for babies often extend throughout childhood.
What is Skin-To-Skin?
Skin-To-skin or Kangaroo Care is the practice of hugging and holding your newborn infant, clad only in a diaper, against your bare chest. In the hours, days and weeks after birth, it is one of the most valuable gifts you can give your child. Some hospitals even provide special chairs and body wraps, to help moms and dads provide skin-to-skin comfortably, for hours at a time.
