Having a baby is one of the most beautiful things to have. Holding your baby is one of the best memories you have of their childhood. It’s rather hard when your baby grows up and begins to think independently. Deep down, you still want the feeling of holding your child close to your chest as you did while your little one was little. What do you do to make sure you maximize this beautiful experience?
Cuddle them as often as you can: Going to bed with your baby wrapped in your arms creates a special connection with you and your child. It is as special as the baby kicking from within. Tell your little ones bedtime stories as they get older. Children love stories, and most of them don’t forget the stories told to them while they were little. It strengthens the bond between you and that child.
Enjoy being silly with them: The fun of having a baby is in being silly with them. You could do this by singing a lullaby and dancing to stop them from crying. Singing and cuddling your baby to sleep is one memory you do not want to forget. Playing children games or watching kids TV shows together is another way of creating memories. Laugh with them too. The special thing is that the parent and child laugh spontaneously at the same time. Make funny faces at them. It makes them laugh. Babies love it when you blow on their tummy. It tickles them, making them laugh. Swing them around in the open air if you can. There’s a special memory that comes with. It makes them twirl, which is something they love doing even till the age of 8-10.
Put down your phone and live in the moment: Take them to recreational centers like parks, the zoo, children playgrounds, etc. Put your little one on your shoulders. It lets them see the view from your shoulders. They are happy when you do this.
Parent-child bonding is very important and should not be skipped. When your little ones grow older, they hardly want to do anything together with you. They want to be on their own. Take advantage of their infancy and create special memories with your children.
