Has anyone seen this study...?

Makes me even more determined to hold and wear my babies. LOL

  • I don't doubt this study's accuracy, however, it makes me wonder how bad my grown daughter's anxiety problem could've been had I not held her as much as I did. I showered her with love and slept with her on my stomach for several months while she went through a horrible bout of colic. She has very bad anxiety problems though.

  • I just found it interesting...I really would like to see or know mare. It makes you wonder. My mom is an extremely stressed out, anxious person. Over nothing. I know she wasn't loved on or held much. Her parents were drinkers and abusive and had 9 kids, 4 after her. It makes sense.

  • I think there are many, many different ways to show affection without having to wear your baby. Playing with them, singing to them, massaging them - all ways of showing love and tenderness without even having to pick them up. I know my mother didn't wear me - there were 5 of us born within 7 years and we are probably the most laid back group of siblings you will find anywhere. She did showed/shows us LOTS of affection, I know without a doubt that I was/am loved, but I don't think wearing has anything to do with it.

  • I think that this study could be very accuarate. I try to show my children that I love them in many different ways by praising them, giving them hugs and kisses, but you also have to make sure that you discipline them when they need it.
