A new nasal spray has been developed for mums that are not bonding with their babies, the spray allegedly helps them become closer to their babies. The trials of the new spray took place in Sydney last year where a chemical version of the naturally occurring oxytocin is created and used in a spray format.
Oxytocin is also known as the love-drug or bonding hormone.
For Mums with low levels of oxytocin, it is harder to respond to the needs of their babies. They don't notice or respond to the baby's cries as quickly as other mothers. So the spray helps them with their low levels of oxytocin by giving it to them in a chemical format.
Oxytocin is vital during child birth as it triggers uterine contractions, and helps the delivery of the placenta and then it helps to stop bleeding. After the baby is delivered it helps in breast feeding by causing the 'let down' reflex which means milk will flow.
Swaddling a baby is a good way to help them sleep and you can even get some pre-wrapped swaddling blankets that are easy to fit and remain in place.
Do you need any more excuses to give your baby a special cuddle?!
