By CHARLOTTE SQUIRE Carole Soutter says the time has come for more dads to connect with their newborns by experiencing some skin on skin'' time with them after they have been breastfed. A long-time Golden Bay midwife, she explained the many nutritional and emotional benefits of breast- feeding during last week's Big Latch On at the Wholemeal Cafe in Golden Bay. Carole works with mums and babies through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal stage alongside fellow midwife Pamela Goffiller. We're now actually supporting men to support their women to breastfeed,'' she said. We encourage mums to feed the baby then put it onto his bare chest.'' She says it is important for dads to support mums in any way possible nurturing her, keeping her warm and fed . . . basically he needs to learn to be telepathic,'' she said. Carole said skin on skin contact between dads and babies encourages an attachment between them that lasts a lifetime. She also said it was calming for the fathers. The mother of a 10-week-old baby, Janelle Palmer, said her partner had practised skin on skin contact with their new-born son Daniel. The connection between them is amazing thanks to skin on skin. They shower together and the connection is huge,'' Janelle said.
