Nurturing your newborn
Babies look both looks and smell adorable and nurturing a baby can feel like the most fulfilling task on earth. Looking after a baby involves many tasks such as feeding the baby, bathing the baby, putting him/ her to sleep and spending play time with the baby. These tasks will keep moms busy and occupied for the first few years of their babies’ lives.

Feeding the baby
Breast milk is a very important component for a baby’s development. Breast milk has proper nutritious and immunology qualities needed by the baby. So the mother must make sure to include plenty of nutritious food in her food as well. Breastfeeding is also a wonderful opportunity for the mother and the baby to bond closely. As breast milk is important, it is advisable if either because of work or any other difficulty a mom is unable to directly breastfeed, to use a breast pump which helps to pump and store breast milk for later use.
Bathing and putting the baby to sleep

It can involve cuddling, talking to the baby and doing a sort of cycling motion with the baby’s legs. You can also decorate the baby room with a lot of colors and hang colorful designs over the baby cot for the baby to look at.
Travelling with a baby!
