Mothers love is supreme as a recent research has found.
Researchers discovered that babies who spend nights away from their mothers portrayed more insecure attachments as compared to those who had fewer overnights.
According to experts, babies have an inborn biological need to be attached to caregivers, and the latest study sought to check out the results when babies spend a night or more per week away from the primary caregiver.
The results pointed out that 43 percent of babies with weekly overnights experienced insecurity over separation from their mothers or primary caregivers as compared to 16 percent with less frequently overnights.
In toddlers, researchers found that greater attachment insecurity was connected to more frequent overnights.
"We would want a child to be attached to both parents, but in the case of separation a child should have at least one good secure attachment. It's about having constant caregivers that's important."
This makes it all the more important that parental plans in the case of divorced or separated parents must include day contact with fathers frequently and regularly. Overnights away from the primary caregiver should be reduced at least in the initial years.
