How to Bond with Your Newborn
Another way to play and bond with your baby is singing. Babies love to be rocked and sung to. Nursery rhymes are fun for Baby, too, even at a young age. Find songs you like from a bookstore, off the Internet, in nursery rhyme books, and in hymnals. Choose five to 10, and make copies of the lyrics. Keep these by the rocking chair, couch, and kitchen to sing to your baby at various times during the day. At play time, sing in a silly, happy voice with lots of laughter and tickling of toes. At sleepy time, hold your swaddled baby gently in your arms while you feed her. Sing in a soft, sweet voice and look deep into her eyes. You can feel the love for your baby swell inside you as you do this time after time.
