Your baby needs you to thrive and grow which goes way beyond feeding. Being responsive to your baby will provide a long-lasting impact on their development and ability to learn. This stimulation and relationship helps them to develop healthy brain connections, regulate their emotions better and form good relationships with you and others.
You can be responsive to your baby by keeping them close both day and night and learning their cues and signals. Remember, being there for your baby in this way means you will help them to feel safe and secure – you can’t spoil your baby by cuddling them too much.
