See eye to eye
For the first few months of your baby’s life, they will be able to focus only on objects that are about 8 to 15 inches away. Put faces to each other’s names by holding your baby around that range. Around their first month, they will be able to hold eye contact when calm and alert, so you can start to share those meaningful looks.
Get close during feedings
Feeding is the perfect time to soak up that skin-to-skin contact with your baby. Skin-to-skin contact releases the hormone oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone,” in both parents and babies and really helps you bond. Get closer during feedings with the Boppy® Classic Feeding & Infant Support Pillow, which lifts babies to a more ergonomic position perfect for intimate feedings and skin-to-skin cuddles, whether you’re bottle or breastfeeding.
Tummy time together
You can get lots of bonding in while your baby is strengthening their neck and shoulder muscles during tummy time. Just set your baby up in their Boppy® Classic Feeding & Infant Support Pillow, so your hands can be free to rub their back, and celebrate their gains with as many forehead kisses as you’d like.
Bonding with your baby starts now, and the process never really ends. Throughout their early life you’ll create countless opportunities to form a lasting, loving bond. Tap the button below to get started with the Boppy® Classic Feeding & Infant Support Pillow.
