Oh my. Thanks for this! I'm a fresh-aunt and I'm really afraid to hold my little niece. I never hold a baby before and now I can practice a bit with a plushie.

Today I was at the pediatrician and saw an extremely careless couple. I searched this video purposely because I knew they were wrong. They held the new born baby without offering him any neck support. Each time the parents took turns holding him, they had their hands on the back of his shoulders, and his head just dangled back. This can lead to future problems in the neck and spinal cord. Very informative video, thank you. Babies are too sensitive we should know these things.

Thanks! I'm in the hospital holding our newborn and just wanted to make sure I am doing it right. This child makes me think I really don't know anything about anything!

should a baby under 4m have a head lag while you hold them? Does that mean u r holding them wrong?

@WiccanHighPriest0 um. Ok.

@WiccanHighPriest0 I used work at an infant daycare so I am a strong advocate of dads doing their share of infant care. In my opinion, many of the skills used to care for babies are not taught to males growing up. I had to learn how to be gentle, how to express empathy and care which is a complex combination of physical and emotive acts that men just don't do normally. But it can all be learned with dedication and patience. Penis hygiene is important and required; dads shouldn't fear that task .

feydrus says:

@Clanky159 Good luck and have fun! Babies this young instinctively pick up on your mood and feelings, so if you can remain confident, calm and relaxed it will help you soothe them too. I think that's why singing softly to babies is so universal. It seems and ideal way to keep us and them calm at the same time.
