Imagine if our babies could speak, would make things much easier right? Luckily our babies are much smarter than we think! 🧠👶🏼
Did you know:
Babies can recognize your voice 🗣️, touch and your scent! Your scent is such a powerful recognition cue.
When babies are exposed to their mother’s smell 👃 it can calm them down and reduce stress. Unfortunately it doesn’t work for all babies, however most babies can be soothed to sleep 💤 and sleep longer when they are snuggling with something that smells like mommy!
Mommy’s scent can also calm and soothe baby 👶🏼 because they associate it with comfort and security.
Therefore your scent is a powerful tool💡 that might help your baby settling down, which can lead to longer periods of restful sleep.
