I still can not believe that my little boy is already five months old. I feel that time is just flying by so fast and I am trying to savor and hold onto ever little moment I can with him. Every time he achieves a new milestone I am so excited for him.
I still remember that very first day home with Mikey and I have a few tips for a great Formula for Happiness and bonding with your newborn. The first day with Mikey was home just a few hours after he was born, the perks of having your baby at a Birth Center. It was absolutely wonderful to just be in my own bed with Mikey and getting to know each other. Cuddles, nursing and looking at every single detail of my little guy. That first day is exhausting yet it goes by so incredibly fast!
One way I found to be a great way to bond and get stuff done is Babywearing! I totally agree that babywearing is a great way to Formula for Happiness when you are trying to still care for other children and keep a happy newborn.
Baby needs to also bond with Daddy and Siblings! Mikey is already in love with his family. Everyone spends time with him each day talking to him and singling to him!
Lastly, because Newborns grow soooo incredibly fast take photos! Take lots of photos. Of their little hands, feet, back of their head. If you can hire a photographer to take month photos do it!!! Here are a few of the professional photos from birth to 4 months of Mikey.
