These small love gestures make your baby feel secure, loved, and improve his intelligence too. A young developing brain learns to make sense of your reactions to his actions and tries to acts the same way. This is why you can see babies love to be kissed and cuddled and respond to you with happier reactions of beating their legs, hands, or wanting to be picked and held closer to a parent or guardian. This is the reason why we recommend co-sleeping and interacting with babies a lot.

5. Helps overcome pains

The baby’s growing nerves are not capable of bearing any sort of pain yet. Be it sore muscles from being in bed for a long time, the achy feeling caused by infection, gas trouble or digestive issues, procedures of drawing blood or injecting vaccinations. Kissing, hugging, rocking them, or even talking to them in a sweet voice helps them cope up with pain up to a large extent.

So next time you kiss, cuddle or hug your baby you are aware of the benefits and I’m sure you will continue to do it longer and forever. Even grown-up kids, you and I always have an urge to be kissed and loved. Age is not a matter anyway.
