Always Hold Them Close – Global Hug Your Kid Day #NoBabyUnhugged

  Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Huggies Canada. I am a Huggies #NoBabyUnhugged Mom. As always, opinions are all mine. 

Today is Global Hug Your Kid day. I am very fortunate that I have eight children I can hug all day every day and you better believe I take advantage of that every single chance I get!
Hugs are so special no matter the age. The benefits are long-lasting and amazing for all ages. With a big family, the older kids always tend to love on the smaller ones, especially babies! This is true in our house. My girls Kyla and Ava are just about to be eleven and twelve years old. They both were thrilled and over the moon when they learned that both Hanna and Mia were girls during my pregnancy. They just adore babies and their little sisters! We are so lucky to have them.Hugs are extremely powerful. They are important for babies for many reasons.  Not only are they vital to the healthy development of a child but the benefits of human touch also extends throughout childhood. For babies, skin-to-skin helps to promote a more stable heart rate, improved oxygen levels, more stable body temperature, improved pain tolerance, improved sleep, faster weight gain and also, healthier brain development.Even now at 3 months-old, I can often be found hugging Mia very tightly. I believe hugs are strong and powerful at any age, but babies need them most. Being a mother has taught me that nothing is more special than these precious moments with our precious little ones, so I am soaking up every little bit of it! As you know I’m a #Huggies_Ambassador and part of that is helping all moms understand and embrace the power of hugs. Huggies® sincerely believes in the Power of Hugs. That’s why every Huggies® diaper and wipe is inspired by parents’ hugs. For nearly 40 years, Huggies® has been helping parents provide love, care, and reassurance to help babies thrive.

    Funny story – I normally HATE to be hugged, but when it’s my kids I am all over it. I hug and kiss them up!

    Hugs from our kids are one of life’s simplest pleasures. It gives them the feeling of security and it gives us parents that connection.

    What a great post. Hugs truly are amazing. I see it everyday in the way Mia looks at you, how she hugs you back

    Ah… we now have teenagers but luckily they still let me hug them. Usually we laugh but a hug is a hug.

    Hugs are healthy! Not only for babies and children but for adults too. I love giving and receiving hugs. My grandchildren give me lots of them and “drool kisses” too. Love it!

    You look so great mama! Congrats on your baby! Love this picture of your family. Huggies is definitely a great brand of diapers!

    For me, I think hugs are essential to daily life. It provides all the positive vibes you need to get through the day. My kids were huggers when they were young. Although they still are today, but not as often as it was when they were little.
