We all love cuddling with our newborns but when we mention skin to skin contact there are always mums involved. However, we can’t forget fathers can provide as much closeness, connection and bonding as mothers. Our T-shirt was designed to help fathers to benefit from its magical time as well. It looks like a standard T-shirt, but the front buttons open and close so dad can place its baby on his chest and offer his warmth and cuddles.
Why is skin to skin contact so beneficial?
✔HOLDS PROPER TEMPERATURE – dad’s skin is the same temperature as mom’s womb so baby finds it easier to adapt to her post-birth environment
✔REDUCES STRESS AND PAIN – 15 min skin to skin contact is enough to calm the baby and stop crying. It boosts oxytocin level ( cuddle hormone ) and reduces cortisol level ( stress hormone).
✔SOOTHES A COLICKY BABY – by reduced stress, colicky baby tends to stop crying and calming down quicker.
✔BETTER SLEEP TIME – cuddled baby is less stressed so sleeps longer and deeper
✔HELPS GROWTH AND WEIGHT GAIN – the extra sleep the baby gets snuggling with dad helps to conserve the extra energy and turn it into extra growth and weight gain.
✔STABILIZES BREATHING AND HEART RATE – being positioned on dad’s chest helps to stabilize respiratory rates and oxygen saturation rates esp. with babies who suffered from respiratory distress.
✔ENCOURAGES BRAIN DEVELOPMENT – by improved sleep, stabilized heart
rate and improved sleep, the brain is better able to develop
As you can see, skin to skin experience can’t be underestimated:)
