See ALL babies right after birth

It is really important that EACH or ALL babies be brought to the parents after birth so that both parents and the babies themselves can be touched, loved on, smelled and cooed over.  You don’t want a time lapse between having both or all babies with you, right from the beginning.  One Mom did not see Twin B until one hour after birth but she had Twin A from birth.  There were bonding difficulties and a preference as a result.  The decision not to bring Twin B to the parents was made by a well-meaning nurse, who apparently thought, ‘they look so comfortable with their baby, I will just take this one to the nursery.’  Babies are not interchangeable and it is recommended that both or all babies be seen and held after birth.  This skin to skin connection also helps with breastfeeding and milk stimulation.
