Ways to strengthen the bond with baby

          Every parent loves their little one, but it is also a great thing to know some extra things how to make the bond between you both even more special. You can be sure there are loads of easy ways to feel close to the new love of your life, so here are some to help you.

          Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is one of the best ways, of course, if you capable to. It is not just about nutrition, when your little one snuggles up against you to be nursed, he hears your heartbeat, smells your scent, also bonds through skin-to-skin contact.

          Eye contact

Be sure to look into baby's eyes during the bottle time. If you want to get credit for all those feedings, keep eye contact and it will help your little one remember who you are and what you truly mean to him.

          Massages

Give your baby a little massage. The benefits for the little one are stunning and you will feel like a superhero when he giggles and coos in delight. Trust me.

          No internet for a couple hours

Put internet away. Your family, friends and co-workers will certainly understand if it takes you a few hours to respond to a text. Take advantage by giving all that extra time to your little one, it will not only make him happier, but you will feel better too.

          Mirror exploring

Look in the mirror with him. Baby does not yet understand the concept of a reflection, but that is totally normal. Babies do love looking at human faces and this is a great way to get him up close and give him a chance to see his own.

          Heart is everything

Listen to your baby’s heartbeat. Remember how excited you got to hear that sweet sound during sonograms? It can now be music to your ears whenever you want, so please, enjoy the moment.

          Sleeping together

An amazing feeling, for both of you, sleeping when he is sleeps. Do not feel guilty for hitting the sack at 7 p.m. To rest well means to be a happy person and even more importantly - to be a happy mom. This way your baby will benefit a lot of from that.

          Do not forget your partner

Be sure to make something sweet for your partner, make some little surprise for him or her. Whether you realize it or not, your little one is picking up on the bond his parents share. Strengthen it just by making a special dinner or taking the time to watch a movie you both like. The point is, remember those good old romantic times.

          Skin-to-skin connection

You carried your baby in your belly for nine months and there is quite a chance that you are both missing that constant physical connection. Just hold him and be with him as much as you can, physically or emotionally. It will certainly make the bond between you two stronger.

          Crying

Crying might be honestly annoying thing, but you should respond to it. Especially for the first three months of baby’s life, your baby needs to know you are there for him all the time and picking him up when little one cries will surely help to build that trust. And no, it will not be spoiling.

          We are hoping these little things will help you to make that special bond even more special. Just try using some of these and perhaps you will feel an amazing difference.
