The science behind the Skin to Skin Contact

Research has shown that skin-to-skin contact between fathers and their infants can help reduce stress for both parties and regulate the baby’s body temperature. This type of contact also releases hormones in the father’s body that can promote bonding and positive emotions.

Moreover, The Rock’s advice reflects the importance of being present and involved in the life of your child from the very beginning. Being a good father means more than just providing financially for your child; it means being there for them emotionally and physically. This advice is not just applicable to new fathers but to all fathers who want to deepen their bond with their children.

“Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear,” he wrote on his Instagram when his third daughter Tiana was born.
