This was the first time that I did "skin to skin contact" with Conner. The nurse that suggested it was so cute and excited for me to try it! She talked about the emotional bond that it creates and also explained that Conner can actually get antibodies from me through doing this, which can benefit him. It was such a sweet experience! I LOVED it and I'm sure that Conner did too! As the nurse laid Conner on my chest, I felt an overwhelming sense of purity and innocence from Conner and it brought me to tears. I felt his warm body against mine and could feel his precious breathing softly on my chest. After just moments of being placed on my chest, his heart rate slowed down and his oxygen level went up- wow! It truly was a special bonding experience for us.
