Research says it’s OK to pick up your baby each time it cries

What? We have to wait for research before we are kind and loving to our children? How far have we come from our natural, inner wisdom?

New research points to cuddled children growing up to be healthier, less depressed, kinder, more empathetic, and more productive adults.According to a WSBT report, “snuggles matter.”The new research from Notre Dame Psychologist Darcia Narvaez studied more than 600 adults and found those who were cuddled as children grew into more well-adjusted adults with less anxiety and better mental health.The study found that, along with cuddling, a positive childhood with lots of affection and quality time also led to healthier adults with better coping skills.The research will soon be featured in the journal Applied Developmental Science.
