For centuries, mothers from different cultures knew that with motherly touch they can calm their child down, reduce any discomfort in his body and eliminate pain. Recent studies have shown that physical touch for a child is vital. It can improve an emotional status, physical development of the child, helps gain weight in premature babies, relieves stress and colics, helps to normalize body temperature and blood sugar, and much more. Nowadays mothers practice things such as skin-to-skin contact or kangaroo care.
