Relax... with baby in hand!
Busy day, stress at work, overwhelmed... Pregnancy and motherhood can be busy and tiring. Everyone needs time to relax, unwind and calm down. Why not try picking up your baby and giving him/her a cuddle? Research shows that the oxytocin released when holding your baby calms your nerves and theirs too. Breastfeeding increases the amount of oxytocin released. So if you've had a hard day or just need some time to chill, gather your baby in your arms and head to the couch. You both will fell better for it! (Just in case you need some more reasons to hold your baby, check this out https://www.bayareabreastfeeding.net/blog/6-amazing-reasons-your-newborn-wants-to-be-held )
