      Holding your baby

      Dad and baby

      Depending on what you’re doing, you can either:

      • Cradle your baby in the crook of your arm, making sure that one arm is under their length and the other is protecting them so they don’t roll out.
      • Or, hold your baby upright against your chest with their head turned to one side – one hand or arm should be under your baby’s bottom, and the other supporting their back.

      Remember, your baby is sensitive and can pick up on your feelings, so if you feel confident about holding your baby, your baby will in turn feel happier and more secure.
