HOLD, CUDDLE, AND ROCK OUR BABY
Touch provides a reassuring sense of safety.
MAKE EYE CONTACT
It’s important to look into our baby’s eyes when feeding, playing, changing, and bathing, and sharing facial expressions of joy and excitement.
CONNECT WITH OUR BABY
COMFORT OUR BABY EVERY TIME SHE CRIES
MAINTAIN REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS OF OUR BABY
NOTICE WHEN WE ARE HUNGRY, ANXIOUS, FRUSTRATED, OR TIRED
It’s important to pay attention to and take care of our own needs. We may need to ask for help from others, and that’s totally okay.
