This article is too short but its significance is large. The snuggles, hugs and kisses are more powerful than you thought.
It has been said that a parent child bonding can prevent illness, boost immunity and improve IQ besides lending emotional security.
And this bonding should start as soon as your baby is born. Once your new born is wiped dry, and wrapped in pre-warmed sheets, ask for her to be next to you.
This helps with the skin to skin contact, provides warmth, promotes bonding and encourages breast feeding.
As your baby starts growing, start spending more time with her or him, cuddling, playing and reading to foster healthy development.
