After a busy morning cluster feeding, it’s time to spend the afternoon asleep snuggled up on Daddy’s chest in their @joyandjoebaby SMP Stretchy Wrap.
It means Neil can care for her whilst also pottering around on his laptop. Even though she’s asleep, it really helps to deepen their bond as the oxytocin flows through them both.
She’s also inhaling his smell which is vital to forming secure attachment as “The sense of smell is processed by a part of the brain that also controls memory. Your baby will form strong associations between particular scents and the experiences attached to them. This means that years later a scent may trigger a memory for your baby and remind him of a time or feeling from his past.” (BabyCentre)
