Live in the moment!
Enjoy the moment!
In the western world, too much pressure is put on you to detach from your precious gift.
How much of our babies time is spent in a container - cribs - prams - buggies - car seats - playpens - bouncy chairs.
Yes, each has its place but do not substitute your arm.
Do not detach from the gift the universe bestowed on you, that you grew and nurtured inside of you!
Hold baby every chance you get. Comfort baby every time you are needed to.
Carry the baby from the house to the car.
Have baby parent facing so you can maintain eye contact and regularly reassure with a stroke of the cheek or touch of the hand.
Use a sling, don’t leave baby in a container when they can be within the place they belong - your arms!
We only have eighteen summers at best before our fledglings take flight into the world.
#MindfulnessMama ensures you #NurtureThatSparkle by always being present and connected in the moment.
Intimate contact creates happier, healthier babies.
We cannot ignite a sparkle in our infant and not nurture it to grow and become a shining light.
Be the parent who always welcomes their child with open arms.
Be the parent who always kisses their child goodbye.
Never let your child feel excluded from your arms.
Build baby massage and baby yoga into your daily routine.
Dance with your daughters and sons.
Play round and round the garden or my little piggie over and over.
Take the photos but do not hide behind the camera - be the one running hand and hand into the sea.
Build those memories in a sea of touch, for you will always remember a small hand in yours but will they remember a kind, safe enveloping hand holding theirs.
For a babies brain to grow and develop the most important factor is the physical and mental bond that you share.
With the most powerful of all touch, we can #NurtureThatSparkle.
