Hello loveley ladies! We hope that you are getting ready for your breakfast in bed and day of celebration!! You deserve it for all of the wonderful hard work that you do. Whether you are an expectant mom or if you are already a mother, remember the beauty that you have granted this world by giving birth. Not always easy and not always enjoyable, but being a mom is a gift and we hope that you are treasuring it. A bond between a mother and a child is dependent on emotional and physical bonding, but it is possible to bond with your baby when it is in the gestational period. Here are some of our favorite mother/child bonding tips:
*Eye to eye contact as well as skin to skin contact during the first few weeks of life is a great way to introduce yourself to your baby. If you are not medically capable of doing this, no problem! This is only the beginning, there is plenty of time to catch up!
*Sleeping in the same room as the baby for the first few months (on separate sleeping forms). This allows for nighttime bonding as well as easy feedings.
* Talk and sing to your baby when it is in the womb so it begins to hear your voice
* Make funny faces. Babies love watching facial movements, so you might start to see some cute facial expressions!
*Read nursery rhymes.This is not about making your 6 month old learn how to read, it is about bonding. Spending quality time with the baby is an integral part of creating a sense of connection with your baby. Reading, singing, taking the baby out for walks are all wonderful ways of establishing the bond as mother and child.
Have a wonderful, fabulous weekend!!
