Answer a few questions to see how much you really know about bonding with your baby.

Question 1/5

Bonding with your baby early can have a positive impact on his self-esteem and social skills.
Oh Baby! That’s Right.
We’re sorry.
A strong mother-baby bond can help shape baby's development, such as eagerness to learn, healthy self-awareness and trust and consideration for others.
Most moms instinctively carry their baby near their heart.
Oh Baby! That’s Right.
We’re sorry.
Although this is true, scientists and doctors have not been able to prove why. Hypotheses range from the thump of the maternal heartbeat to keeping a right hand free to multitask.
For dads, bonding with baby is not quite as instinctive as for moms.
We’re sorry.
Oh Baby! That’s Right.
Dads have their own special way of connecting – changing diapers, bathing, cradling and feeding with a bottle. In fact, studies show that fathers can become just as nurturing as mothers.
Massages can help babies reduce stress.
Oh Baby! That’s Right.
We’re sorry.
Research shows that this can relieve stress in babies and postpartum depression in mothers. Plus, it helps you connect with your baby through touch.
Newborns can easily bond by looking into their mothers’ eyes.
Oh Baby! That’s Right.
We’re sorry.
When babies are born, they can see at a distance of up to 10 inches. Just after your delivery, as you’re holding your baby for the first time, put your face close to your baby’s, align your eyes and let the bonding begin.
