We were asked by WaterWipes to share our “Skin to Skin” story and after watching their Pure Love film, we reflected on our own experiences of using skin to skin with our newborn baby over the last 3 months.
The Pure Love film documents the benefits of using skin to skin, as 3 young couples venture into parenthood. With the help of Dr. Susan Ludington, a World-renowned skin to skin expert, these families are shown the science behind skin to skin.
Using skin to skin is a fantastic way to bond with your baby and by doing so, releases Oxytocin – “The Love Hormone”, to both baby and parent alike.
Our experiences confirm this enhanced bond and the additional benefits, including regulating a babies body temperature and heart rate. We would highly recommend using skin to skin with your own family.
