When a little bundle of joy arrives in your life, you’re likely to feel overjoyed yet also overwhelmed. Getting used to having a new baby in your home can be a major ordeal, and it can often leave you feeling like you just don’t have enough time to bond with your baby. The good news is that there are lots of easy ways that you can bond with your infant and make every day a day full of magical moments. From giving an extra special massage with baby lotion to letting loose and laughing with your baby, you’ll quickly find ways to enhance your bond with baby.
Cuddle When You Can
If you’re looking for some sweet, special moments that you can spend with baby, cuddling is always a good idea. You can do it anytime, anywhere, and it’s sure to be a big hit with your little angel. If you don’t think that you can spare a lot of time for cuddles, just take a few minutes before baby nap time or before a massage with baby lotion. You’ll be surprised at how a few quick cuddles with your precious angel will lift your spirits and make you feel so much closer to one another.
Enjoy Play Time
The time that your baby spends playing each and every day can also be a time where the two of you come together and strengthen your bond. A lot of moms get so caught up in all of the responsibilities that go along with being a parent, such as shopping for baby lotion and other new baby essentials, that they sometimes forget to let loose and have fun. What better way to do that than with your little bundle of joy? Take some time out of your day to enjoy just playing with your baby. Even if it is just five minutes, if you are able to let loose and have a little fun, it will make your parenting experience that much more rewarding.
Tuck Baby In
If you have a baby who is generally pretty fussy when bedtime rolls around, then you might not see bedtime as a time for you and baby to bond with one another. However, those last few minutes before bed can be some of the most magical moments that you spend with your little one each day. Instead of getting frustrated with a fussy baby, try to spend some time figuring out what causes your baby to be grumpy around bedtime. In most cases, it’s something small that can be overcome with love and attention. Try putting baby to bed a few minutes earlier than you normally would and give your little one a quick baby massage with baby lotion. Anything that promotes skin-to-skin contact will help you feel closer to your baby and help him or her get to sleep easier.
