As you are running around your house picking up clutter reading this article, you’re probably holding your baby on your left side (go ahead, you can check). In fact somewhere between 70 and 85 per cent of women carry their

babies on their left side.

Why do we do this? Well, by holding your baby on the left side of your body, you activate the right side of your brain, because of lateralisation. Activating the right side of the brain is important for mothers because that’s the side of the brain that is in charge of reading emotional cues and understanding language.

So by holding your baby on the left it helps you to understand your child more easily.
