Bonding, vital for development.

Parent-baby bonding begins right from conceiving period, during pregnancy time and continues after birth. When baby is born, the bond should be maintained between dad-mum-baby to reduce baby’s stress levels, to smoothen present and future communication and most important of all so that the baby feels secure in a safe and intimate environment.

A few strategies are listed here to help new parents maintain the bond with their babies;

  1. Massage
  2. Skin-to-skin contact
  3. Maintain eye contact
  4. Sling carrying
  5. Talk to baby regularly
  6. Dance, listen to music and sway together
  7. Singing and rhyming
  8. Cuddling up and reading a book
  9. Bouncing and rocking games
  10. Don’t rush bathing time. Do it gently and affectionately.
