Most parents hit it off with their little ones right away. The tremendous need to bond with a newborn is normally triggered by an intense emotion that makes a parent-particularly the mother-want to love and protect her young offspring. For some people, however, this may require a longer period especially after a complicated pregnancy or a strenuous labor. Nonetheless, “my first baby” guidebooks usually reiterate the value of bonding time in spite of the preceding circumstances.

The Importance Of Bonding Time

Research suggests that babies who cultivate satisfying relations with their parents are likely to develop into well-adjusted and confident adults. Plus, they have also shown to do better in school.

In truth, the necessity of spending some quality time with your baby has an absolutely natural origin. It is actually an instinctive process-one that had been interwoven in the fabric of human nature.

Bonding Tips For Parents

If you wish to improve your relationship with your little one, you surely need to make an effort towards the fulfillment of your goal. First-time parents-such as yourself-would certainly consider the following bonding tips to be of use.

1) Use touch

One of the baby’s earliest means of communication is through touch. So make the most of this by holding your little one closely. You may cradle him (or her) in your arms or make use of a sling as an alternative in case you need to carry out a few chores.

2) Breastfeed

Breastfeeding a baby will guarantee that he (or she) gets frequent close contact with his (or her) mom. This certainly helps foster an early connection between mother and child. Sadly, the task isn’t always that easy. In order to resolve breastfeeding difficulties and other related issues, you may seek the advice of a health counselor or simply talk to an experienced parent who can help you with your predicament.

3) Sing or hum a tune

It doesn’t really matter if you’re an excellent singer or not so long as you can carry a tune. Your little angel will love listening to your voice just the same. Even the metrical nature of popular nursery rhymes is extremely comforting and is thought to facilitate language development.

4) Give your baby a massage

A massage offers a more planned and controlled manner of touching your little one. And aside from the excellent bonding time it affords, it greatly encourages your baby’s mental and physical growth.

5) Talk to your baby

Although your little one may not comprehend what you’re saying, he (or she) will love hearing you talk about anything under the sun. In addition, your baby will acquire confidence from the fact that you’re always there for him (or her) even though you still have tons of household chores to do.

6) Make the most of daily activities

Even the time spent for diaper-changing can be converted into a wonderful bonding period. Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to just talk to, kiss or cuddle your baby. Constantly tell your little angel how much you love and adore him (or her). This will also help you forget about what a messy task it is to frequently change diapers. In other words, it’s like hitting two birds with only one stone.

So don’t let a fast-paced life stop you from bonding with your baby. Learn to relax and take pleasure in every minute you spend with him (or her). Books with “my first baby” themes will almost certainly tell you the same thing about the value of spending some quality time with your little one.
