Touch meets a baby’s needs for physical contact, affection, security, stimulation and movement. Skin-to-skin contact is especially effective, such as during breastfeeding, bathing or massage. Carrying or babywearing also meets this need while on the go. Hugs, snuggling, back rubs, massage and physical play help meet this need in older children.
