Getting to Know Your New Baby

Getting to Know Your Baby

After all the months of waiting and dreaming, it is exciting when your baby is finally born. But it takes time and effort for parents to get to know their newborn, and time for the newborn to adjust to the new world.

Getting to know your new baby is part of a fascinating but relatively simple process called bonding, in which you essentially "fall in love" with each other. Although bonding is a natural process, it takes effort. Some ways to help make this process easier include rooming-in at the hospital with your baby and techniques such as infant massage.
