When women become mothers, they will usually be insecure about their new role, and that is a normal thing. You need to understand that this is a normal process and you shouldn’t be afraid of it. We understand that you are scared because you don’t want to do something that can hurt your child. But don’t worry you won’t. Just think rationally. For example, if you are not sure what to do, you could always call your pediatrician who will tell you what to do. You can ask your parents because they know how to take care of babies, after all, you were once a baby. And of course, there is an option to ask your neighbors or your friends who have children. They will help you we are sure. Being a mother is a wonderful experience. Your life won’t be the same from that moment.
To bond with your child, it is vital to spend time with it. You will probably work and have a job once the period of leave ends. After that, you will have to go to work again. It is a good idea to hire a nanny if your partner is also working late, but once you both come home, you should spend as much time with your child as you can. This is very important if you don’t want to hear the word “mama” or “dada” coming from your child’s mouth and when it’s looking for your babysitter or nanny. This can be an alarm because now, you child identifies them as their parents, not you. If you don’t want that to happen, it is vital to spend as much time with your child as you possibly can. Forget about everyone else.
It doesn’t matter if you have a partner, you should always spend as much time with your child as possible. In that way, you child will develop into a normal child with normal social characteristics. You should always know that a child is not a toy, and you will have to spend as much time as possible because children need attention. You don’t want to end up in a situation when you child says the words like: “You were never around when I needed you.” That is a real bummer when you hear that from your child. It will hurt. Our instant reaction will be something stupid like: “I was always around, but you didn’t pay attention,” which is a lie of course. Our children notice everything and when they say that you weren’t there, trust them, because you weren’t. They don’t lie when talking about emotions. When in anger, they can usually say things like: “I hate you,” but we all know that they don’t mean that. That is the state of anger.
Be a good parent
If you want to bond with your child, always remember to spend enough time with it and you will be just fine.
