New babies are wonderful, but they can also be challenging and exhausting with nonstop care. Just remember–there is no such thing as spoiling your baby. Caring for your baby when she cries or fusses lets her know how much you care.
At this age, babies like to:
- Be close to your body and cuddle
- Look at your face and watch your expressions
- Hear your voice
Playtime tips: Sing a song during diaper changes, coo and copy your baby's sounds, or read simple picture books. If your baby gets fussy, sleepy, or turns away, it's okay to give her a break.
