Skin on skin contact with both my babies has been one of my most favourite experiences, the connectedness I have felt is out of this world. But what I didn’t realise was the sheer power it has on a baby.
Lois Wattis, Midwife, Nurse and Author says, “The skin of a newborn baby is extremely delicate and sensitive. Skin to skin contact has so many benefits for a baby, from helping to reduce stress and supporting sleep, through to aiding their adaptation to the big wide world and boosting mental development. Skin to skin contact stimulates baby’s instinctive reflexes to breastfeed and enhances bonding”.
WaterWipes released a film (below) that captures an experiment by world-renowned ‘skin to skin’ expert Dr Susan Ludington. The film shows the science behind skin to skin and the natural power a mum has to care for her baby. It’s certainly a confidence booster and had me in tears.
Andrea Hawes from WaterWipes says, “This film reveals the biology of skin to skin contact, the ability of mums to soothe their new baby, and highlights why mums shouldn’t let anything come between them and their baby. We have launched the #PureLove campaign to support new mums, inspire confidence and demonstrate that all a baby needs is you.”
Why don’t you watch the film and share your reactions and personal experiences using skin to skin contact in the first few weeks of your baby’s life?
Why I love WaterWipes
I love using WaterWipes. They’re 99.9% purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract and I am 100% confident using it on Miss M’s new skin, on Master E’s face when wiping off the remnants of his peanut paste toast and I even use them for myself to remove my makeup. I’ve tried numerous brands of baby wipes with both my children and find many of them to be very strongly scented, even if they are labelled unscented. WaterWipes also maintain their moisture well.
