20Move To The Left

Carrying a baby on the left side may just feel like one of those very natural things that you do without even noticing, but as it turns out, a study in the journal Brain and Cognition says that Moms actually prefer the left side because of how our brains function.

"The right side of the human brain receives signals from the left side of our bodies, and the right side of the brain is the part that handles our focus, our ability to translate social cues and to build relationships," the study says.

So by keeping our little ones on our left, we are able to build a more intimate bond with our little ones, not to mention that they are closer to our hearts that way.
