Bonding from a very young age requires contact, eye contact and an attitude of love. We instinctively bond with our babies a lot. When they eat, when we change a diaper, etc. You can also do bonding and even educational activities paired together. Infant massage when you change a diaper is a great way to end a diaper change with some focused time with your child. You can also do some baby yoga (think gentle stretching movements), do a fingerplay game (like itsy bitsy spider), or sing a song. There are all sorts of teachable moments with your baby, they slip by so fast, do not miss them or overlook their importance.
