Hi cathy!

This idea is so interesting, it is nice and sweet. When parents touch their babies, I think there is a invisible line between parents and babies which connects them closer and closer. Also, some approaches need to be considered to spread and share these knowledge to the parents, such as, the communities can provide some workshops for parents, together with their babies, teaching them how to bond with their babies.
