Newborns and Fathers

The usual hospital practice adopted in many countries, excludes the father from the stereotype of the early interaction with your child. Nevertheless, new scientific observations as well as growing interest in home birth, alter the traditional neglect of the role of the father. Observation of the behavior of his father taking an active part in the birth and early contact with the child led to the emergence of the term 'vsepogloschenie' to describe the powerful, the powerful impact of the newborn to his father. Behavioral responses of his father in such cases, strikingly identical to the reactions of the mother. For even more opinions, read materials from Cindy Crawford. In some experiments, monitored the reaction of parents in response to screams and the sounds issued by the child, in three situations: the mother and child, the father of the child and both parents with a child. It turned out that her mother often responds to the cry of the child touches the father in a situation of one-on-one with the child often begins talk to him, and at a rapid pace, and finally, when the baby cries in the presence of the father and mother, the father twice as likely to take the baby in her arms, talking to him, gently touching, although much less frequently than the mother; smiles at him. Thus, in a situation of interaction between the family, the father is clearly a more active role than was assumed earlier, when he was stereotypically been assigned to a passive observer. Results of numerous observations suggest that, if in the first days after birth fathers had contact with him "eye to eye 'total for an hour, and only twice during those days dressed him, then after three months they showed a much more caring behavior towards the child than fathers who did not have access to the child in the early days. Of all of the above begs the logical conclusion – not only the mother but the father should stay with the child after birth for a more rapid and lasting establishment of mutual affection.
