Observations were made on the emotion and behavior of the newborn placed beside the mother immediately after vaginal delivery. The newborn after listening the mother's gentle voice will soon show a peaceful Buddha-like facial appearance and cease to cry. The newborn will not have opened it's eyes for more than 10 minutes unless bathed after birth and placed beside the mother and will hardly move either extremity. After about 10 minutes, bilateral movement of the fingers, wrists and forearms was observed. This newborn will not cry at all for several hours thereafter. On the other hand the infant born to a heavy smoker would not cease to cry and would continue to maintain an appearance of anxiety even when gently accosted by the mother. The newborn about 10 minutes after birth has the ability to search for the mother's nipple.
