Oxytocin nasal spray may help moms bond with baby


An interesting article in the Sydney Morning Herald details a new study by Australian researchers.

This new study involves Mom getting a dose of a synthetic nasal spray version of the hormone Oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle hormone.”  Mom then participates in a few structured therapy sessions with baby to measure eye contact, affection, and if there is any improvement in bonding between mother and baby.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Lauren. Please see my comments at the bottom of the original article. I didn’t save them to add to your comment section by mistake. Naturally occurring oxytocin is manufactured in the body with nine amino acids and their nutrient cofactors.
