Holding Your Newbornfrom: Maxx Family Life
When holding your newborn, it's important for you to realize that a baby can pick up on the way you're feeling and how you're relating to them.
If you're a first time parent and nervous around your baby, or if you aren't comfortable holding your baby, he/she is going to sense this, and is likely going to arch his/her back and not want to be held by you.
In order to avoid this situation, try to relax and feel comfortable holding your newborn.
If you're able to feel comfortable, the baby will sense this, and will be comfortable with you. Remember, it's important for you to hold your baby safely and securely, but also to make him/her feel comfortable in your arms.
There are several ways to hold your baby that are safe and comfortable as well. Also, holding them in different ways might make your baby less bored and more entertained. If they're fussy, it might be because they're bored. If you hold them against your body and face them away from you, it will give them more to look at and help them be less bored.
What's important to understand about holding your baby is they need to feel safe in your arms. This is very important to the health and happiness of your baby. Make sure that when you're holding them, you're supporting the entire body and helping them to know they're safe. If they can relax in your arms, it means they feel safe.
Always keep your mind on your baby when holding him or her, making sure you're concentrating on how you're holding him/her, and once you're sure of yourself, it will come very natural to you.
A baby likes to feel close to you, and if you hold him/her close to you, they'll feel much more secure than if you hold them away from your body. Hold them close to your body, keep them safe and secure, and you'll discover that you have a happy baby who is content being held.
