Childbirth brings about a whole new phase in the life of parents, and for every phase in one’s life, there is a need for a set of skills, attitudes and a reorientation needed to make the journey a smooth ride. In getting it right with nurturing your newborn baby, here are some skills that might come in handy.

How to hold a baby
When you’re dealing with a fresh-out-of-the womb baby, you want to be as careful as you can, what with their delicate body parts and all. With your baby in your arms, place one hand under the head and the other under the hips.

How to burp a baby
In the first few months of after childbirth, burping your little one after every meal is as important as breastfeeding him in the first place. Burping ensures breastfeed goes down well and your child is comfortable, do this by holding him to your chest such that his chin rests on your shoulder.

How to get the baby to sleep
Babies tend to sleep a lot, however, getting them to sleep might require you have a trick or two up your sleeves. These tips should do just fine in lulling your child to sleep: keep the room lit up during the day and dim the lights at night to set a pattern between day and night for your child, resist the urge to give your drowsy baby a peck especially when he falls asleep while nursing, because this might rouse him from sleep all over.
