What an awesome responsibility
parenting is! Everyone has an opinion on how you should raise your
child. Which way is best? Listen to your baby and let your heart
decide. You were born with instincts to love, protect, and nurture
your children. Babies are born with instincts to help them get their
needs met (attachment promoting behaviors). Babies cry, not because
they are manipulating you; babies cry because their needs (not wants!)
are not being met, and they trust YOU to meet them.
Love your baby, trust your baby's instincts, and cherish this time
in your child's life. Your child will change daily, sometimes hourly!
Cuddle your baby closely in a sling,
sleep with your baby, and love your baby as much as you can. You
can never love a child too much.
