Bonding with a newborn can be a process filled with excitement and joy. Some mothers bond with their babies immediately while, for some, it can be a slow and gradual process.
By developing a loving and connected relationship that is based on learning to read and respond to the baby’s needs, parents can bond well with the newborn. But, what if parents find it difficult to establish this bond immediately? Worry not. Here, we look at some ways through which parents can easily bond with their newborns.
An article published in parenting.com recommends seven ways to bond with a newborn that includes:
- Parents should spend as much time as possible indulging in skin and eye contact. Cuddling with a newborn is one of the greatest rewards of parenthood.
- Breastfeeding should be done as often and long as possible because it promotes bonding.
- Parents need to listen to the baby crying, which is her way of communicating. This will make the baby realise that parents can be trusted.
- Bonding with a newborn is quite a challenging process. It is neither something that happens immediately nor something that can be expected to happen within a certain period after birth. It is a wonderful experience that needs time and patience.
