Chemistry of Attachment
I thoroughly enjoyed chemistry in high school but did not learn about some of our particular hormones until I was a mom. In this article the author goes through the different hormones involved in bonding with our babies/children. Some of them I have heard of and known about and some are new to me. I found it very interesting to see the behind the scenes look at why I bonded with my children. It's amazing how we are wired, isn't it?
I did not have any bonding issues with my children. We bonded almost immediately but I have heard of others who have not and it took them a while.
What do you think of the chemistry of attachment and did you bond easily with your baby(ies)?
