Holding baby close seems to be a universal thing. It always amazes me that the perfect distance for newborns to see, is exactly the distance from baby nestled at the breast to Mommy’s face! No wonder, baby transfixes his gaze on Mom or Dad. As new parents relax into their new roles, how they hold baby will become familiar and baby will feel safe. However, when someone new lifts him up from his cot or pram, he will know this, not just by the voice of the person, but how they cuddle and how they talk to him.
The language of crying becomes strangely familiar to Mom and Dad in a short space of time and then you can comfort appropriately and quickly knowing that you are understanding you baby and enabling him to feel safe, understood and comforted!
“Neh” = hungry
“ Eair”= gas /pooh (lower gut)
“ Eh”= burp
