bonding with your baby

Stay close to help bond with your baby

Your baby loves being close to you, so move their arms and legs gently and continue to use massage as you did in the first few weeks. Holding your baby close during feeding, picking them up and rocking them gently will make them feel loved and help strengthen the emotional bond between you.

Did you know?

Touch is the only sense that gives your baby three things they need. It provides a sense of safety and security, gets them involved with the world around them and is a way that you can communicate with them and they can respond to you. As if you needed an excuse for more cuddles!
