When mother touches her new born baby for the first time, her feeling cannot be described in word. She feels like all happiness of the world came to her with baby. Bonding of mother and child already began during pregnancy. Mother can feel movement of her baby after sixth or seven months during pregnancy. When baby kicked mother, she can feel that movement and share such feeling with her partner. Father and mother both enjoyed their baby’s movement. Baby can attach with her mother within a short period and then after she is just habituated to be close with her mother.
Bonding of mother-child relationship is bonded faster than other relationship with other member in the family as mother is nearer to baby for more time. Baby can recognize touch of her mother very soon within a few days after her/him birth. Baby likes to talk and see you. When mother talks with her baby, baby responds her mother by showing her/him liking or disliking with expressions of laughing or crying. Your baby can recognize your voice and touch very quickly. When your baby crying in other’s hand and when you carry your baby, you can find that she immediately stop crying. This means that your baby needs your presence and love. Bonding of mother and baby gets stronger within a short time because their bonding was already started before her birth while mother touch her womb with love and talk to her baby during pregnancy. Child who gets earlier bonding with their parents can grow more naturally.
Bonding is a natural affection and cannot build artificially. It takes some time for parents to bond with their baby. When they play with their baby, find her/his smile, cry or other movements attract parents and they fall in love with their baby. They get eager to spend maximum time with their baby.
