New parent, let your baby smell you.
Lise Eliot, Ph.D., assistant professor of neuroscience at the Chicago Medical School says that babies can detect their mother’s armpits from feet away.
In Women’s Health article “Why Do Babies Smell So Good? The science behind what makes infants irresistible” states that it is a mystery why newborns smell so delicious!
Knowing about nature’s wisdom, we dared to hypothesized about the primal meaning of some scented messages:
Mom’s smell: Thankfully the person who loves me the most is here to protect me from any danger, because I can’t do anything on my own. Wheew!
Dad’s smell: Who’s this?? I think he’s cool because mommy smells like him sometimes.
Baby’s smell: Mommy, please fall in love so you do everything for me, in return I’ll help the species survive. Deal?
Enjoy each other’s smell and engage in that primal conversation!
