I'm reading a book "Phenomenon: Secrets of the Senses" by Donna Jackson. In her book, she says that babies prefer their mother's left hip because that's the side that her heart is located on. The book says that baby's worlds revolve around the mother's heartbeat and their first words even mimic the heartbeat: Mama, Dada, Baba...
I think, maybe they're just asking right handed mothers. Since generally, the hip we hold our children on corresponds with our non-dominate hand. However, I don't know any left handed mommies. So, in your answer, tell me which hand you write with and which hip your children prefer. This should be fun :) Thanks!
