Parenting is not only about Mother and a child. Its about father and child also. Fatherhood is equally important for a child as a motherhood is. We often talk about a mother and child relation but forget about bonding of a baby with Father.
Today I will talk about how important a bonding of a baby with father is.
Motherhood is a natural instinct. But a child is not complete without a Father too. Fathers do have emotions. They also want to bond up with their child as a mother do. Father plays a role in every child’s life which cannot be filled by others. This role can have a large impact on a child and help shape him or her into the person they become.
The bond between Mother and child doesn’t need any substantiation, its right there from the moment of conception till even after death. In the same manner, bonding of a baby with father begins at conception and goes until you die.
Same as a mother, fathers also need to learn to build up a bond with their children.
Following points will help you strengthened the celestial bond of father and child, which will be an awesome experience.
Talk to baby: Babies knows you and your voice even before getting birth and recognizes the voice of their father. So talk to your baby, sing for them when its in mother’s womb. It will be easy for a baby to cope in your world as soon as it arrives.
Cuddle your baby: The need of being loved being cherished is among one of the most important human needs. Especially babies crave for the caregiver’s touch, cuddles make a huge impact on their life.
Cuddling releases, a hormone called love-hormone scientifically known as Oxytocin, it also called feel good chemical, it helps the babies understand the feeling of love and being loved.
Skin to Skin Contact: Yes, you read it right, Skin to Skin contact is equally important for a bond between a father and a child as it is important for mothers. Fathers can give massage to babies. It will help you build a bond with your child. Babies get the feeling of security and warmth. It will additionally give relief to mother also doing so many activities all alone.
Bath your baby: Fathers can also give bath to their babies, it not only the responsibility of a mother 😊. It will only improve your bond with your child.
Feed your baby: Feeding your baby doesn’t mean, you have to breastfeed them 😊. Set a rule to feed your baby once in a day. It will help you spend time with your baby and build up a understanding. Also it will give some relaxed time to mother.
Change diapers of baby: Be it a boy or a girl, fathers should refrain from saying, it’s a girl, so I can’t change her diaper. We all are grown up and after all its your daughter. Changing diaper of a baby girl isn’t bad or offensive. It gives babies a sense of security and help them open up with their fathers.
Read books to your baby: Read books to your little baby. It will help them grasping the language easily.
This close attachment is not only soothing for both father and a child but also boosts immunity and enhances IQ in the infant.
The way a father treats his child will influence what he or she looks for in other people. Friends, lovers, and spouses will all be chosen based on how the child perceived the meaning of the relationship with his or her father. The patterns a father sets in the relationships with his children will dictate how his children relate with other people.
Young girls depend on their fathers for security and emotional support. A father shows his daughter what a good relationship with a man is like. If a father is loving and gentle, his daughter will look for those qualities in men when she’s old enough to begin dating. If a father is strong and valiant, she will relate closely to men of the same character.
Unlike girls, boys model themselves after their father’s character. Boys will seek approval from their fathers from a very young age. As human beings, we grow up by imitating the behavior of those around us; that’s how we learn to function in the world. If a father is caring and treats people with respect, the young boy will grow up much the same. When a father is absent, young boys look to other male figures to set the “rules” for how to behave and survive in the world.
Children additionally look to their dads to give a sentiment of security, both physical and passionate. Kids need to make their dads pleased, and an included dad advances inward development and quality. When fathers are warm and strong, it enormously influences a kid’s psychological and social turn of events. It additionally ingrains a general feeling of prosperity and fearlessness.
This Celestial Bond of father and Child is for life and beyond. Lie around the baby doing nothing just relax, play, snuggle, cuddle & enjoy. So, make your relationship strong with your children and give immense love whether it’s a boy or a girl 😊.
