20Giving Lots Of Positive Touch
Mom and dad must always be ready to give their newborn as much positive touch as possible; because this is one of the main ways the baby will begin to experience the world. Examples of positive touch include cuddling, hugging, holding the baby close, and other forms of gentle and
deliberate touch. By doing so babies will often cry less, express their happiness more often, and tend to be more aware of their environment compared to babies who do not get enough positive touch.
Mom and dad should also hold their babies on their bare chests in a way where there's skin to skin contact. This is sure to make the baby extremely happy because in utero they were used to such warmth as well as hearing their parent’s voices.
