My newborn baby is so cute and cuddly. We all know that babies grow up so fast, it can all be so much fun! Now that my baby is older, I’m having more trouble with my newborn baby care. I don’t know what I did wrong or how I’m doing it. Here are some things that I do, that worked for me.
Play as a baby: If your baby is playing with other kids in a daycare center, make sure that you spend a little time with them. Play as much as possible! Babies love to play and interact with people, but they need to be kept busy for optimum growth. Babies need a lot of stimulation every day! So, check out daycare centers and parks on the weekends to see if any of them have free play time for kids.
Read books to your newborn: When you first bring your baby home, you may have all of the books that you want to read. However, it’s important to start reading to your newborn as soon as possible so that he or she gets familiar with sounds, letters, and the words. Start off with something easy like ABCs. Your baby will love this and will start forming sentences around these sounds. Try to read at least a book a day so that your baby will have constant stimulation to keep him or her interested.
Don’t forget to dress your newborn baby happy! If you bring your baby home and they’re not dressed to the nines, sit down with your baby and go over what you need to do. Most babies grow up and become a little bit independent, but it doesn’t hurt to dress them up a bit happier so they feel better about themselves.
Introduce your baby girl to her own personal “diary,” a special place where they can write and type out their thoughts and feelings. When your baby girl gets a chance to see her diary, it can be a good idea to show it to her. This can be an especially good idea if you have a lot of special events going on in the family or at the house during the months that your baby is in the new year. This way, she will get to know the journal just as her mom does and may feel a bit more comfortable knowing that it is there if she wants to read it.
Have my newborn baby girl take care of her own personal things. For example, your baby girl may only have her diapers with her. This may make her very nervous and even frightened, which is perfectly normal. Therefore, if you are going to let your baby girl take care of her own personal items, be sure to prepare those for her as well. Some small, even plastic, storage containers can work wonders for keeping these things out of your baby’s sight so she won’t be afraid of them.
It might be a good idea to introduce your little sweet newborn to the real world before letting her run around with all of her new friends. It is important for her to see how people live, work and travel. By doing this, she will develop much more quickly and have much less fear about the future. Just remember, even if your child looks totally innocent, that she still needs you around to make sure she is safe. New babies always learn by seeing what society considers as dangerous and dull.
