9 amazing newborn instincts

Here are 9 amazing inborn baby instincts, which can be observed in the first hour of his life.

1. Immediately after birth: first cry

The sound that marks the beginning of a new life. The first cry of a newborn, as a rule, is loud and shrill, because just think about it! – for the first time, he independently takes in air into the lungs.

2. First minutes after birth: relaxation

After the first cry, the baby quickly subsides, there comes a period of relaxation. At this moment it is very important that the child is in direct contact with the mother, skin to skin.

In this position, the body temperature of the crumbs, his breathing and heartbeat adapts to the mother.

3. 3 minutes after birth: activity

Three minutes after the first breath, the baby begins to get acquainted with his surroundings: he moves his head and shoulders, opens his eyes, smacks his lips. The most important thing for a newborn now is eye contact.

Even if at this moment the baby is turned on its side, it will turn its head until it meets its eyes with its mother.

4. 8 minutes after birth: search reflex

Eight minutes after birth, one of the main reflexes of the newborn is manifested – search. If you touch the baby’s cheek, he will turn the head toward the stimulus and open his mouth.

5. Periodically: rest

At any stage of his acquaintance with the world, the baby now needs rest. He can close his eyes and die down for a while, and then again be awake.

6. 35 minutes after birth: crawling

Incredibly, only half an hour after the birth, the baby is strong enough to crawl through the mother’s belly and get to her breast on her own! The crumb bends and unbends legs, repels from mother’s abdomen, thereby helping the uterus of the woman in labor to contract.

7. 45 minutes after birth: familiarity with the breast

Having reached the breast, the newborn begins to meet her: he touches the nipple, smells it. The mother’s body reacts to this contact with a powerful release of oxytocin, a love hormone. At this moment, a feeling of affection and affection between mother and baby is born.

In addition, oxytocin contributes to the reduction of the uterus and the discharge of the placenta, as well as the production of colostrum in the breast of a woman.

8. About 60 minutes after birth: sucking

Capturing a breast for the first time is not an easy task for a newborn. He may need several attempts to start, finally, to suck.

The first drops of colostrum that a baby gets are very important – they populate the baby’s gut with beneficial bacteria, preparing its immune system for a meeting with the outside world. According to studies, infants with early feeding experience, as a rule, do not have any further problems with improperly grabbing the breast or abandoning it.

9. About 2 hours after birth: sleep

Under the influence of the calming effect of oxytocin, mother and baby fall asleep. Finally, both can rest after giving birth.
