Hold on Baby!

It's been said that if a mother doesn't hold or nurse her newborn child in the first few hours of life the bond between mother & child may not be as strong. Fortunately many experts agree that this is pure myth. It's been suggested that there is only one chance to do things right as a mother and although research does show that the first few hours of baby's life are an important bonding time these hours do not dictate the bonds that will last a lifetime. Experts have seen time and time again that mothers having 
C-Sections, cases where newborns are in need of immediate medical attention apart from their mother or in the instances of infant adoption, very strong life long bonds are developed quickly. A loving relationship over the child's lifetime more than make up for those missing few hours, days or even weeks of separation at the beginning of life.

  1. I certainly wouldn't think any separation would damage the bonds so good to know it doesn't!

    Hope you are enjoying these last bits of summer Annie! Hope everybody is doing well too! Hugs to you!
