Day 39 - The Difference Between Mom and Dad

Today's Tip - Sometimes your baby will need his Mom instead of Dad, and vice versa.

Newborns are very intelligent when it comes to differentiating between his mother and father. If you were active and moving around alot during your pregnancy, the baby will associate his mother with activity and moving around. If the father read at bedtime to the baby every night, he'll associate him with relaxing and sleep.

The baby will prefer a different parent at different times. If food and a clean diaper don't make him stop fussing, try handing him off to a partner to see if he's just craving a different person.
