Leave the baby to cry does not help to develop their lungs, or reinforce your character, or a lot less is a good method to learn how to sleep. The baby's crying is a cry for help and, as human beings, our instinct leads us to serve those who need help, how can we not do this with our own baby?
Even so, it has touched my deep of the idea that it's okay to let him cry until he gets tired and goes to sleep. To reverse this belief, it is important to disseminate scientific research as that which has just come to light that demonstrates why the crying baby should always be attended to and the consequences of not doing so.
According to a recent study led by Darcia Narvaez, professor of psychology at the University of Notre Dame, in the united States, and will be included in the scientific journal Applied Developmental Science, a baby that tends to be loaded while crying may be an adult more healthy, less depressed, more kind, empathetic, and even more productive.
“WHAT THE PARENTS DO IN THE EARLY MONTHS AND YEARS IS AFFECTING YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE THE WAY IN WHICH THE BRAIN OF THE BABY IS GOING TO GROW. KISSES, HUGS, PETTING AND COOING IS WHAT THEY EXPECT THE SMALL. THEY GROW BEST THIS WAY.”
The study was conducted with more than 600 adults and found that those that were embraced when they were children are now people much more adaptive, less anxiety and better mental health.
The early life experiences have an influence in adulthood. Situations distressing, tears that are not addressed, the lack of contact produce fear and insecurity. Like any young mammal that is away from the protection of his mother, the baby feels a danger of life, and as a reaction to such a threat, the brain of the baby increases the secretion of cortisol, the stress hormone.
By studying the cases, the author of the study noted that "already in the adulthood, people who are not used to receive such care tend to be more reactive to stress and it is more difficult to calm down.”
