The Very First Thing You Should Do After Delivering Your Child

By Blog, Family, Kids Health, Kids Sleep Tips, Parenting, Toddler Sleep Tips, Uncategorized

The anxiety leading up to the delivery of our child can be overwhelming. We want our baby to be healthy, we aren’t sure how that “special bond” with the child will take place, and we hope we will be able to provide enough breast milk to feed them. These really are the top three most important initial concerns for most moms-to-be. When expecting parents ask me for help in preparing for this, my first and only answer often surprises them. “Really?” they say, “it seems too simple.” It is simple. It’s called Kangaroo Care.  And it’s been around since the dawn of man. Kangaroo Care is allowing your baby to connect with you naturally through immediate and regular skin-to-skin contact, right out of the shoot.
