Having a Baby
What does it really mean to have a baby?
When you have a baby, if you think about it, you don’t just have “a baby” but you truly create another human being, a person who will make a difference, large or small, in our world. This person you create will be a newborn for only 28 days, and will be an infant/baby for only one year. Your baby will be a baby for a very short time.
So the message is this:
Enjoy your newborn, enjoy your baby, while you can.
Take advantage of your baby’s perfect design and carry, hold, and wear your newborn or baby often to reap all of the wonderful benefits available to both of you.
Pay attention to your newborn and to your baby.
Provide an abundance of human touch, love, and attention (intentional baby care) at every opportunity.
Intentional baby care is proven to help you nurture a capable, independent, self-confident, loving, trusting, optimistic human being … starting from Day 1.
Having a baby means you have the power to make baby care choices that can make a world of difference, literally.
For you and yours,
