Animals and people have natural instincts. We just know how to do things – we do things that we were never actually taught to do. They say maternal instincts are primitive; which means that the maternal instincts women have today have been the same since the first humans walked the earth.
Obviously, the things women worried about in the 1800s are very different than what we worry about today. But being a loving and protective mom has never changed. Ever wonder why most moms carry their babies on their left?
It isn’t always because the other arm is tired or hurt – there is a scientific reason. It is an automatic reflex – 70-85% of all moms will pick up their child and put them on their left side.
