Between morning sickness, choosing baby names, setting up the nursery and labor (ouch!), you’ve already done a lot of hard work. But the real job of raising a happy baby has only just begun.
There’s no perfect way to raise a healthy, happy child, but these tips may help guide you as you start your parenting journey.
Help your baby master skills. Think your baby is too little to learn? Think again! As your infant grows, he will acquire an astonishing skill set. Help him master these milestones. Grown-ups aren’t the only ones who benefit from a feeling of accomplishment.
Create healthy habits. Exercise, a healthy diet, and yes, sleep, are the trinity of childhood happiness. A routine that includes a predictable bedtime, a menu of fruits and veggies, and a lot of physical activity means a happy baby.
