How to help your Baby Feel Secure

After their birth, babies feel very insecure. They strive to adjust to this fierce environment. It is very important to provide a sense of security to your baby. Following are the tips you may use for the purpose:

  • By covering the baby with a blanket you are able to give warmth to the baby. In this type of environment, the baby feels homely. Mittens and bootees become essential if the weather is harshly cold. The wrapping may not impede the blood circulation of the baby.
  • The baby feels cozier when he sleeps on warm and soft stuff. Thus, put a blanket on the bed before putting your child down. The pillow should also be soft and smooth. The pillows will make him feel that he is still in your arms. You should tie the pillows with the margins of the crib. In this way the pillows will not slip even if the baby moves from its place. You should make the baby sleep with you. He will get the warmth of your body by this, which will make him feel safe and sound.

  • Rocking makes the baby feel very pleased in some situations. You should rock the baby and give him soft touches of your favorite song. He will fell asleep in no time because by this the tension on his mind will be released and he will feel awesome comfort.
  • Rub your hands gently on his head and make him talk to you. You should also put forwards some soft words in the honor of your baby. He will be pleased talking to you.
  • Massage the feet of the baby with the help of a lotion or oil. This will create a sense of protection in the kid.
  • You should keep it in your mind that your child should not become restless in any case. The cause of restlessness in new-born children is often their diapers. You may not wait for the baby to cry. If he feels uncomfortable check his diapers.
  • Do not meddle in the affairs of the child that are a bit personal to him. For instance, you may not interfere when the child is playing.
  • Give due importance to the nutrition of your baby. Milk is the main requirement of babies. They should get adequate milk in the whole day. 5-6 times a day may be enough.
  • You should provide your child with some independence. The sense of independence is necessary for the child to learn things such as, crawling and walking. Give your baby love. He needs it at all times of his life!
