The Importance Of Picking Up Your Baby

It happens that I see a mother or father pushing a baby stroller with a crying baby. They keep on walking, instead of picking up the baby and comforting it.
Other times in busses you see parents busy with their phones and the baby is distressed, crying her heart out.

I just don’t get that, why?

There is research showing that there is a natural response in us when becoming parents, to nurture our baby when it is crying.
The research shows that the maternal brains around the world adapt so that mothers can quickly respond to a baby’s cry, pick them up, hold them and comfort them. It is a natural response in all mothers.

The research suggests that the reason for why some doesn’t pick their baby when crying might lie in the culture.

Many chose not to pick their babies up so that they don’t learn that every time they cry, they are going to be carried.
With today’s knowledge, we know that this is a myth.
Babies are not manipulative, they have been inside of you for 9 months. When they come out, it’s a scary place for them to be and quite overwhelming.

You and your scent are the only things that they feel safe around. So pick him up, calm him down and then lay him down again, that’s it.

Another thing that been on my mind, read more here.

By letting the baby cry by himself and not comforting him, you are only teaching him that he is not safe, and the biggest stress factor out there is to “not feeling safe.”
You are the parents, and you are the one source of security they got.

Research also shows that those babies that were held more showed superior cognitive development as long as eight years later, Dr. Bernard found.
“Physical contact is the ultimate signal to infants or small children that they are safe. When a small child is frightened, the most effective way to calm him down is to hold him.”

So pick your baby up next times she is crying.

It will benefit you both.

    Just one dollar a month will not be reflected in your home budget, especially since you pay much more for the Internet and do not think about the costs, and your income will increase from month to month. You just need to program yourself to work for a long time in the digital business and remember that there are no freebies on the Internet. Money must be earned competently and honestly. To do this, there is a computer, the Internet and competent programmers – employers. On the Internet, 99.9% of all proposed projects for earnings are scams and hypes that are created by crooks and scammers. We are the 0.1% that people trust. We are not ashamed of our system! On the Internet, you will not find reviews from people who have been affected in our system. There are only a few paid fake experts who are trying to denigrate our company (although the <a and <a projects received <a from Yandex "a Site with a high degree of user engagement and loyalty")… These false experts advertise Scam banners on their websites, under the guise of alleged decency. This must be understood!
