The formation of the bond, probably one of the most pleasurable aspects of infant care, occurs during the sensitive period for the first hour and the first days after birth, during which parents establish a deep connection with the child. Physical contact between parent and baby favors that emotional connection.
In infants, attachment promotes emotional development and this, in turn, has an impact on development in other areas such as physical growth. Another way to think of bonding is a kind of “love” of the parents to the baby. Children who have a parent or other adult who wants unconditionally are likely to fully develop.Begin to establish that bond with her baby in her lap and placing it gently stroking in different ways.

Certain types of massage can contribute to the formation of the bond between parents and children, while favoring the growth and development of the baby. There are many books and videos dealing with infant massage and baby massage (ask your child’s pediatrician to recommend some). Anyway, beware: babies are not as strong as adults, so you must proceed with great softness and delicacy.
Usually, babies love to hear vocal sounds, as they talk, babble, sing or lull. Probably your baby will also like you to listen to music. Rattles and musical mobiles are another way to stimulate the hearing of infants. If your baby seems nervous or restless, try to sing lullabies and nursery rhymes, poems to recite or read aloud while rocking gently in your arms or in a rocking chair.
Some babies are unusually sensitive to touch, light or sound, and mourn and may startle easily, sleep less than usual and / or turn your face away when you speak or sing them. So should control the levels of noise and light.

*Fold the bottom corner of the blanket up over the baby’s feet, bending of the fabric down if you approach the baby’s face.
