From the time the baby grows in her womb, a mother secretes pheromones. These are chemicals that animals and humans secrete that act to influence another of the species and bond them together. The pheromones of each individual animal or human are unique. Each has a particular chemical makeup, which means each also has a different scent or smell. Pheromones play a part in the attraction of male and female. But this is not the only role of pheromones.

Babies recognize their mothers through the scent from the pheromones. Breastfeeding further provides this bonding through scent. Babies recognize their mother's smell and that recognition encourages bonding through scent. Fussy babies, who cry even when handled by adults, quiet down when they sense the presence of their mothers. In those early days when eyesight isn't what it will be in a few days and the mother's face may seem a bit blurry to the eyes of a newborn, her nearness calms. While babies may not clearly see their mothers, they can smell them. They have lived with the scent of their mothers for nine months. To them the pheromones given off by their mothers signify the warmth and safety of the womb.

As mothers cuddle and feed their babies, the bonding through scent becomes even further entrenched. Babies recognize the particular scent given off by their mother's breasts and will refuse to nurse at the breast of another. Even in animals, blind offspring find the place of nourishment by their sense of smell.

Nursing comforts the baby and provides nourishment. Part of that comfort is derived from the security the baby knows because the scent of the mother is identified. Being assured they are in the arms of the one who gave them birth calms babies, making feeding time also a time of refreshment and bonding for both mother and child.

Bonding through scent, decreases a baby's anxiety and strengthens a bond that time does not erase.
