Babies can express their feelings and needs in many ways. Learning to
read your baby is very important, especially for parents who want to
respond to their baby's needs appropriately. Crying is a major source
of communication that the newborn baby has. So in one way, it's a very
healthy sign that your baby can cry and let you know that he needs you.
The bond between the parent and baby may be deepened if parents are
sensitive to their baby's cries, gestures, and behavior in general.
I feel that it is very important to learn to listen to your children.
You can learn to listen to your baby even at its very early age.
Listening means focusing your attention, not in a worried way, but in
an observing manner. You want to learn what your baby wants and needs.
You can read books and articles but the main way you will learn about
your baby is to be observant in a meaningful way. That means spending
time looking and listening to your baby, not just feeding and cleaning
him, and putting him to sleep, but also keenly focusing your undivided attention to him. And then trusting yourself. Because you do know more than you think you do.
