Skin-to-skin is exactly what it sounds like—holding your baby’s bare skin close to your own to create a sense of comfort and bonding for both of you. Skin-to-skin contact with newborns has been shown to relieve stress, lower the risk of postpartum depression, stabilize your baby’s breathing, heart rate and temperature, boost baby’s immune system and support breastfeeding. Getting tons of skin-to-skin contact at the hospital or at home is easy, but if you want to make it easier out in public or when you have company, try these innovative skin-to-skin, babywearing tops for moms and dads.
