Newborns Require Attention | Need for Attention

“A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it.” -  Frank A. Clark

Parenthood is not just a transition of life, it's a beginning of huge responsibility coming your way. Remember the nine months that you prayed for this bundle of happiness to take birth? Now it’s the time to take responsibility for it.
Ever seen those nine-months-old crying to their nerves for the want of their mother? Wonder what prompts them cry so loud despite the entire family trying to soothe them? Here’s the answer to the long chain of questions.

Your newborns require attention.

Your baby has taken the first step into this world and the only people that he/she knows is you. Your absence from their sight for even a couple of minutes makes them feel uneasy. A child calls for their parents’ undivided attention until they get familiar with the outside world. It’s a natural reaction because they realize it’s the only way they’ll get to feel comfortable and satisfied. Small babies cry more, have trouble getting to sleep, and are sensitive to life’s discomforts. 
There are several other reasons why the need for attention in baby grows.

Physical Growth: Your child needs your consideration for his physical advancement and to ensure their needs are met.

Psychological development: Your infant additionally needs your consideration for healthy psychological development. Infants are born with the need to be loved, to feel emotionally secure and esteemed.

Emotional formation: The emotional connection that structures among child and parent amid the early years gives the premise to your infant's future connections. The main way you and your infant can frame this emotional bond is by you giving them your consideration.

Responding to baby's cues "isn't a matter of spoiling," says J. Kevin Nugent, director of the Brazelton Institute at Children's Hospital in Boston and a child psychologist. "It's a matter of meeting the child's needs." Rather than letting newborns cry, guardians should keep their infants close, support them when they cry, and take them to bed with them, where they'll feel safe. Pay your baby all the attention they want.
