Skin to skin

Skin to skin is so powerful (regardless of how the baby is born).
As soon as you have the opportunity to hold and smell your baby
Spend as much time as possible, naked from the waist up, with an equally naked baby …
Inhale the smell of their head, even if it means delaying the onslaught of visitors for a while.
Skin to skin is not just for a new born, either.
Spend time skin to skin with your growing baby – bonding and re-connecting with them
Skin to skin is for both parents.
Skin to skin is for the other children or child it’s fabulous for their relationship.

I love Greys … when I was catching up with the more recent episodes this was just wonderful to hear.  The following is taken from Greys Anatomy where skin to skin or kangaroo care is described.
