The Importance Of Skin To Skin Contact Between Mom & Baby
This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
I have always been a huge advocate for skin-to-skin contact between mom and baby and could preach for hours on the many benefits. I took full advantage of that special bonding time with all three of my children, getting as much skin-to-skin contact with them as possible. Not only would they sleep better when placed on my chest unclothed, but it also has the following positive effects on your baby:
- More likely to latch on
- More likely to latch on well
- Maintain their body temperature
- Maintains their heart rate, respiratory rate and blood pressure
- Has higher blood sugar
- Is less likely to cry
- Is more likely to breastfeed exclusively and breastfeed longer
- Will indicate to his mother when he is ready to feed
We do so much for our newborns to ensure that they stay healthy, happy and safe. We inspect every blanket, each sock and make sure everyone washes their hands before holding them. However, there is one very important thing we must consider as well… something that we will use on our baby more than anything else each day… baby wipes!
Whether you are expecting a new baby, baby shower shopping or currently have a baby… it is never too late to consider the wipes you are purchasing. WaterWipes is a chemical free baby wipe that contains only two ingredients, 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. There is absolutely nothing on these wipes that is going to cause harm to your baby’s delicate skin.
WaterWipes are both durable and effective without containing any of the harmful chemicals that may be found in other baby wipes. When taking your baby’s skin into consideration, you should always provide the safest and most natural option for your little one. There is nothing worse than when something causes your baby’s skin to become irritated and sometimes during into a painful rash. This can be easily avoided by avoiding products that contain chemicals that can be harmful to their skin.
To show the unique connection between mother and child as never before, WaterWipes has asked the world’s leading skin to skin practitioner, Dr. Susan Ludington, to conduct a series of tests with three new Moms and their newborns. The result is a captivating look at the undeniable and magical connection between mother and child! Make sure to watch the Pure Love Video to see for yourself!
