1. Get involved in every activity:
It is very important to share a bond of care with your newborn. It gets triggered if you start to get involved in every small activity from day 1. Try to do his work like diaper changing, bathing, washing, playing, etc. It will not only strengthen your bond with the kid but will give you the confidence of fatherhood. You will feel happy and your partner, relaxed.
2. Observe the signals:
It is a fact that babies cannot speak. But, they do have a signal language by which they try to express their needs naturally. They cry or giggle and grab your attention for showing hunger, discomfort or any need. They do it on specific occasions. So observe your baby and try to figure out his reactions on fixed times. It will help you a lot to understand his needs.
3. Provide him a loving touch:
A baby does not see but identifies the known by touch. It is always recommended to have a loving touch with your kid. Hold his hands, kiss his cheeks, make him sleep on your chest or in your arms. It will make him feel secure and his brain cells will be stimulated for healthy development and self-confidence.
4. Try to communicate:
Communication plays a vital role in developing a strong bond with your kid. Talk to him even if he does not respond. Give him directions about what is happening around. For example, talk like, “Here comes your food, my love! You will become superman after having it.” Isn’t it so pleasing?
5. Play with him:
Kids demand nothing but the time of their parents. It develops a sense of confidence and courage if the parents re spending a good amount of time with kids. Spend time with your baby and play with him. Storytelling is another best option to opt for during playtime.
