While you’re trying to figure out your baby, she’s busy trying to figure out you too.
A great example of just how quickly a newborn recognizes his parents happens at the first well-baby visit.
Almost without fail, when a newborn is undressed and weighed, he’ll start to cry. I’ll try and settle the little guy by talking, shushing, and cuddling him. But if that doesn’t work, I’ll wrap him in his blanket and pass him over to his mom.
The instant he’s in his mom’s arms, he’ll stop crying. This means a 2 or 3 day-old already recognizes and trusts his mom.
