At My Expert Midwife we know that immediate skin-to-skin and keeping your baby close when they are newborn can help to promote bonding. Using MORI’s soft touch cloths can help mums and babies to bond even when they are not together.
Place one tucked into clothes on mum’s skin, close to the breast, and one with baby in their crib or cot. Exchange these cloths between mum and baby regularly so their unique scent can continue to encourage bonding. Being able to smell your baby can help stimulate the breastmilk let down reflex and milk supply when breastfeeding and expressing breastmilk.
Your baby may also settle with your partner, or for their naps, more easily if they are able to smell your scent. These cloths can be especially helpful if you are separated from your baby for any period of time.
