Unlike a father, a mother generally grows close to a newborn spontaneously. There are definite procedures for a father to grow closer to his baby. Handling the baby properly is very crucial. The first step towards being a good father is to know how to hold your baby correctly. This can be done by holding your baby near the head and neck. After this you become more confident as a father.
Playing with your baby, making your baby smile or giving your baby a bath are the next steps that come out naturally after that. Even then you are advised to do it in the presence of someone experienced, if you are trying it for the first time. Your baby starts becoming fond of you if such activities are done regularly by you. Slowly you can also take up the responsibility of feeding your baby and even putting your baby to sleep.
Changing your baby’s diapers is also easy. Babies tend to dry after soiling their diapers. You just need to be careful while removing them, cleaning the soiled area properly and then putting a new set of diapers. Going close to your baby as a father might be difficult but is definitely achievable.
