Being a parent is one of the most difficult and delightful jobs in the world. Sometimes new moms make some mistakes when dealing with their babies due to inexperience in motherhood.

Don’t do this to your baby!

Remember that what really matters is that when you are raising your little one, you follow your instincts and never forget that your baby needs you all the time… he needs your protection and your constant care.

Ignore your little one

Babies do not cry to make you mad or to annoy you; if they do, it is because it is their way of communicating with you. He tells you through crying what he needs at a certain moment. It can be to satisfy basic needs like eating or sleeping or simply to give him some comfort. Even if she doesn’t stop crying, she can tell you that something is wrong. If you ignore it, your baby will experience a lot of distress. Remember that it is a defenseless being that depends totally on you.

Shake him

Some parents find it fun, but it’s actually too dangerous to do. Do not shake him even for grace and much less when you are angry. Your baby’s neck and head are very delicate, and if you shake him, you could seriously injure him. Your brain may move, and you may suffer bruises, bleeding, permanent brain damage, and even death.

Leave him alone

Never leave your baby alone; it is bad for him. Leaving him alone doesn’t teach him to be independent; it just makes him feel abandoned. He will grow into a baby with serious emotional wounds from not having felt his parents around when he needed them most. Also, believe it or not, because it is just a baby, it will end up having insecurity and low self-esteem throughout its life. Is this what you want for your baby?

Hit him

Never hit your baby. Not your children, not anyone. Violence is never a solution, so hitting should never be an option for raising your children. Children from the time they are babies need discipline and teaching, of course, but this does not mean that you should use violence on them, even when their behavior is bad.

As parents and adults, our duty is to guide, protect and teach your children through love. Explain things with a firm voice but always with love and from the heart. Violence only gets you to obey through fear and have resentment and emotional pain.

Not carry him in your arms.

Just as you do not have to leave your baby alone (or let him cry), do not stop carrying him in your arms. There are many times that you will hear that you should not hold your baby in your arms because you spoil him or because that way, he will not become emotionally independent. Ignore them, your baby needs your arms, and it is also what will give him security and confidence from the beginning. Your baby needs affection and contact with you for as long as he asks, so a good bond will be established between you.
