Q:

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.

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 ?

Rosemary John

no no . he feels secured only with me .

Rosemary John

Neha , he always looks upwards....

Neha Agarwal

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.
