Teach your baby trust: Respond to his or her cries. You do not spoil him if you offer him love. There is research saying that the first four years are VERY important for the child to bond with its family and the others and this will play a role later on. The less you pay attention to him, the LESS he will communicate with the outside world and show his affection. Think about it!!!

Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you'd have. It's about understanding he is exactly the person he's supposed to be. And, if you're lucky, he might be the teacher who turns you into the person you're supposed to be.
