Hey Rose. Do not worry at all. It's is a beginning and baby is very small. Key is not to get impatient at all and let ur baby be and naturally develop bond rather than forcing anything. You are his mom, nothing can take away him from you. Are you breastfeeding him? I can suggest some ways in which you can naturally connect with him rather than getting impatient. trust me he will catch it that ur impatient and this will come in your way. It's very simple, just relax and enjoy this phase of motherhood.
yes I am bf him . its not mee people say why can't he see its time . he doesn't response . I am really worried .does he have any problem . once I asked pedia also she said its ok
Do not worry about what others say. trust ur pediatrician.
Rest assured ur attachment willl develop gradually through everyday caring for ur baby, when you :
1. answer his cries
2. hold him close and cuddle
3. give him plenty of eye contact even if he doesn't
4. talk to him
5. smile at him
keep him in ur room during nights even if he is on the crib. maybe next to ur bed.
baby massage may also help build bonding. you can read articles and watch videos on baby massage on babychakra's Learn section.
Most importantly do not feel guilty as many more moms are in the same boat as you.
Are you feeling signs of detachment with your baby ?
no no . he feels secured only with me .
Neha , he always looks upwards....
That's fab. continue doing it.
Rosemary..if you are really concerned, you can consult a developmental pediatrician. A mum knows best if the baby is delayed in his/her milestones. Search for Dr Roopa Srinivasan in the search bar and call her up. You will also find details of locations where she practices. It's best to address a problem early, if there's any at all.
