Infants and parents are biologically tuned to become attached to each other and this attachment promotes the baby's survival. In the United States, Kangaroo cares a method of skin to skin, contact in which a newborn has lied face down between the mother's breast for an hour or so at a time after birth. In Africa, the baby is raised in a caring family atmosphere where there is an extended family to take care of the babies. The mother caries baby on her back while working and spends time taking and playing with the baby. In Mongolia, the mother gets very less time to spend with the baby as she has to run errands and most of the times she has to work away from the baby. The social interaction is only during a family get-together for the baby. In America and Japan, the babies are taken to the park, shopping malls and the music classes for them to be social also the grandparents visit them often. The babies living in the countryside and tribe have less strange anxiety than children in the city like Tokyo and San Francisco. Secure attachment is when faced with a stressful situation and the caregiver effectively comforts the
Special care and attention must be given to infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) because of their small size and the health complications they face. One particular challenge faced by health care professionals in the NICU is the management of pain for preterm babies. Preterm infants must undergo a wide range of tests, procedures, and, often, life-saving measures during their hospitalizations, which not only subjects them to pain, but pain-related stress and anxiety. This has an impact on the infants themselves, as well as on the family members and friends who are involved in their care (Smith, Steelfisher, Salhi, & Shen, 2012). The purpose of this paper is to examine the problem of pain management among preterm NICU patients and propose the implementation of kangaroo care as a pain management technique.

Two things to note, under supervision from a seasoned babywearing "professional" I was able to conquer my fear of using a wrap and ask the thousands of questions I had about them. This expanded the options I had for myself when deciding on the best newborn baby
The evolution to bipedalism resulted in the narrowing of the pelvis. This narrowing was necessary for locomotion, but it increased the difficulty of childbirth for women. In other primates, birth is relatively easy. Babies come through a straight birth canal and are born facing their mothers. The mother can pull the baby out during birth without causing injury to spine of the baby. The human female pelvis is now smaller and babies are forced to be born facing away from the mother. Assistance is needed during birth to prevent injury to the baby's spine. The birth canal is curved and there is barely enough room for the passing of the head and shoulders. (Ackerman).
