Pets and sibling bonding – Love pheromones

Pets and sibling bonding - Love pheromones

This is Ryder and his BFF Stella .. These 2 are the cutest EVER and totally inseparable .. When his mama was pregnant , Stella was a puppy and would snuggle all day on her baby bump .. I told her I had a premonition that her baby and this dog were going to be seriously bonded in love and BFF’S … Turns out I was right !!!!!

Did you know that when a baby is born and throughout the first few weeks of their life they releases love pheromones from the top of their head that help lock in the bonding process . Not only is the beneficial for the parents but is also especially helpful for the bonding of siblings and pets . Make sure to let your other children hold the baby , have them smell and kiss the baby’s head. Don’t be afraid to let your pets sniff away . If you choose to have your baby in the hospital have someone bring home the hat that they put on baby’s head . Give it to your pets to sniff before bringing your new baby home so they will already be familiar with it and when they meet your babe will fall madly in love just like Stella and Ryder are !
