Tired New Dad Demonstrates The Perfect Way To Hold A Baby

Jul 1, 2015 By Mary Madsen
Adjusting to life with a new baby can be hard, but new dad Jordan Watson was able to see the lighter side. All joking aside, holding your baby is important, no matter what technique you use.

Until fairly recently, the importance of human interaction with newborns was vastly underestimated. By the 1980s, people noticed that children raised without physical touch (such as those raised in institutional orphanages) developed many problems later in life. For instance, a study showed that the levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in children who spent more than eight months in an orphanage were significantly higher than children who hadn't, even years later. Now, holding your baby has been shown to speed up their development and self-recognition.
