From the momment you come into this world your parents start caring for you, caring for a developing baby is crucial for it’s well-being, one of the gifts a mother has naturally, although you can go a bit go the extra mile and hed over to training classes held at local lesure centers.
Becoming a parent is a lifetime commitment, you will have to devote every say to your child until they choose to become independent from you. It is a fact that babys, while still inside the mother, can hear many internal and external sounds, mainly being the mother’s voice. This is why a mother’s voice is usually so soothing, they are so familiar with their mother’s voice even before birth. If the dad wants in on all that action it might be good for him to be talking to the baby while its inside the mother’s womb.

Caring for your new baby
Instinctively, babys cry to communicate. If your baby starts to cry it may be because of a number of factors, to much movement, discomfort or just wanting attention, so its very hard to tell what they actually want. If your child does start crying, breastfeeding is recommended, as this is the main cause. It can always be subsituted for bottle if in a tricky situatiion Babies are born with that instinctive sucking impulse to allow them to squeeze out milk, there is also that innate behavior which babies show when they seek out the nipple they are feeding from, it’s called rooting. As babies are taken care of by adults.
As babys develop, food supplements become a part of their diet. There are choice commercial baby foods to complement the formula or breast milk they are taking in. There are also home-made meals for the child’s dietary needs. Supplemental vitamins are also a must for infant health and growth. At one year of age, whole cow’s milk, known to have a lot of protein and fats, can be used instead of the infant formula; however, the lower-fat milk should not be fed until the child is 2 or 3 years of age.
Babies need about 18 hours of sleep daily, and this regresses as the child grows older. Babies are carried in arms, held in baby carriers, and conveyed in strollers until they are they learn how to walk. There is even a need for a child safety seat in motor vehicles for them. This is a law in most well developed countries.
