Connecting with your baby will mean a deep emotional connection with her. Your relationship with your baby may begin when you meet your baby or may take some time to develop a bond. In any event, over a period of months, your baby connection will grow and evolve.
Here are some ways to connect with your baby during your daily interactions:
- Make eye-to-eye contact
When your baby feeds, changes, or plays. He likes to look at your face and is likely to spend a long time looking at you. You let your child know that you take care of him and his needs when you return this eye contact.
- Talk to your baby every day
You will notice that you do not listen to her and she will react through facial expressions and motions with time while not answering your conversations with words. Talk to your child about your day, tell her your daily interactions or make stories just while you’re playing. You’re going to find your baby a great listener!
- Touch your baby often to build your connection with him
Take the time to hold him lovingly and touch him. Contact with a child can be extremely comforting and can help your child feel close. Baby massage is a great way to touch your baby carefully and to make your child both comfortable and comfortable.
You will find him/ her more engaged by thinking about eye-to-eye contact, touching and speaking about your baby’s everyday activities. These actions will over time bring you closer together and help to build the essential relationship between parent and child.
