* Reduces stress:

Cardiologist at Fortis Memorial Research Institute, talks about a few little known scientific benefits of hugs for your baby. A child who is hugged, feels relaxed. This physical expression of love will decrease the cortisol (the stress hormone) to the safe level.

* Helps to heal:

Hugging and cuddling is known to help heal diseases. This again is recognized to the release of oxytocin. And this is the reason parents of premature babies are encouraged to have skin-on-skin contact to help them grow and develop. This very reason is firmly suggested by experts who swear that a new mother heals quickly after delivery if she is immediately left with her baby undisturbed.

One more important point that a Huggies survey highlighted was that 90 per cent physicians and experts believe that a newborn child can recognise their mother’s hug. When the mother takes the little one into their arms and gives them a warm hug. They can identify their mother by engaging their primary instincts and senses, such as recognising her scent and voice.
