Does My Baby Know Me?

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. ⁣

My baby always wants to breast feed so she cries a lot! It is very draining to me cause I don’t get a break! She also wants to be held all the time I have trouble putting her in her crib cause she loves the warmth of the body.Sigh
