14Baby Closer To Heart
One theory that has been floated in regards to holding the baby on the left side of your body is it positions the baby closer to the actual heart. Why would that matter? Well, aside from the fact that it's really sweet to think about putting those we
love right by our heart, it could be soothing for the baby to hear it as it beats. In the womb, babies are able to hear our heart beats etc, all the time as they go about their business. It's the literal and figurative soundtrack of their lives while they are taking it easy waiting to go through the business of being born. It's a soothing noise that they are familiar with. Therefore if we are picking them up to coddle or comfort them, it makes place to have them near a sound that they would be familiar with.
