Take care of your baby's needs, i.e. from food to sleep. By seeing your face, again and again, the baby also gets acquainted with you and feels safe in your arms and lap.

Your child cannot speak so he/she cannot express anything to you in words. In such a situation you must go to them and understand why they have been there. There can be many reasons for their crying such as:

  • hunger
  • tiredness
  • discomfort 
  • or any other problems

Play with baby
