When you’re pregnant, the idea of sharing a cuddly hug with your newborn is never far away.
But if you’re looking to get away from the stress of having a baby and just let your newborn be the caregiver, there are some great ways to get out of the way while you’re still in the process.
Here are 10 things to consider before you start sharing cuddles with your new baby.
Do it in the dark and under the shade: This can be a great option if you have a window or shade.
Just be aware that you could be giving your baby a mild cold, which could cause the temperature of your baby to drop and possibly cause a miscarriage.
However, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to keep your baby warm during the cuddling, and that’s a win-win situation for both of you.
Take the time to let your baby do the talking: You may be tempted to just go for it.
That’s fine, and you can still take the baby’s cues on when and how to go into detail.
However a good rule of thumb is to let him ask questions to help you relax.
This is important for a baby who is unsure of what to do when he’s being a little weird.
Don’t put your baby down for too long: If you want to relax during your cuddle, try to make it as gentle as possible.
Your baby may want to go for a walk with you, or maybe they just want to watch the sunset together.
If you’re taking it slow and relaxing, they’ll be more likely to listen to your baby.
Give your baby plenty of space to rest: If your baby is still trying to get into the cuddle, you might want to give them a breather.
For example, if you need to make a baby check-in, offer to put your hands on the baby so they can get comfortable.
This will help them feel more relaxed and get into a more comfortable position.
Remember to take breaks: The more you’re relaxing with your child, the more likely they’ll want to move around.
So, if your baby’s not interested in a cuddled hug, give him a break.
Be mindful of your surroundings: Keep your baby away from bright lights, bright furniture, bright lights that can create a noise, and bright objects, like TVs and cellphones.
This could also cause your baby discomfort.
Avoid loud noises: You could find yourself trying to quiet the baby down during a cuddy.
You might want the cuddy to be quiet for a few minutes, but if your infant is too loud or you hear him growling, it could be causing discomfort.
Make sure your baby knows where you are: When you take the cuppa, make sure that your baby has a clear way of seeing you.
Make it a point to have your baby check in at the same time you check in, and also to let them know when you are going to be checking in.
This should help them know where you’re going and will allow you to relax and have a little privacy.
Have fun: Some cuddlers have said that they love the fun of sharing the cunnilingus with their babies.
That can be great, but make sure to make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed.
If the baby is crying, just keep on giving: If the crying baby is making a noise or crying, then you might not be able or willing to share the cuddled up affection.
In this situation, it’s best to just keep sharing cuddle time and be gentle.
This won’t cause any harm to the baby, so if you are in an emergency, it won’t harm the baby.
