So with that said, now to the question. Your favorite tip for raising a healthy baby? For me, that’s simple… lots of love and encouragement. One thing I’ve found with both of my children is that they need to know they are wanted, that they are important in our lives. I never miss one single day without telling my children how much they are loved and appreciated.
I can see how this has helped my son grow as a teenager and be o.k. with saying “I love you” to people important to him. I’m watching my daughter starting to express her love openly. I think it is because my husband and I have showered them with love and tell them constantly how much they mean to us. Regardless of illness, struggles and just the day to day struggles of life, I firmly believe that if we know we have people connected to us, that we can endure anything that is thrown our way, either physically or mentally. I believe it is the way we are wired.
So my best advice, share and show your love. Let those important to you, especially your children know how important they are in your life. I think it goes a long way in keeping your child mentally and physically healthy.
