8 Signs To Understand Your Baby Loves You

 

The world of babies is completely different from the adult world and so is the way of expressing feelings. Babies are not able to speak out their love as their brains are not yet able to train them to speak out their thoughts and feelings. This is the reason why they have their non-verbal communication process to transmit meaningful messages to their parents who are always trying to understand what their babies need. Given below are some of the signs that help you understand as a mother that your baby dies indeed love you and needs you at all points of time.

The Eye Gazing Sign:

From the time, a baby is born he keeps staring at faces, and you must always keep in mind, that he can make out in very little time who the important person is. According to neurologists, this intimate gaze is actually a basic ‘survival instinct’ that is exclusively designed for attracting both attention and love of the ones taking care of the child. However, your baby also starts loving you and shows it through this non-verbal communication as keeps understanding your importance in his life.

The Smile Sign:

Always savour the first moments that you baby smiles at you and every time henceforth that he smiles when looking at you. This genuine, fascinating grin is a great sign of showing how much your baby loves you.

The Smell Recognition Sign:

Your baby recognizes your smell even when he is exposed to a bouquet of roses with you by his side. Studies show that a 1-week-old tends to show signs of recognizing his mother’s milk-stained clothes and no smell on earth compares to your smell when given a choice. It is also one of the earliest signs of his love for you.

The Cooing Sign:

The earliest cooing that your baby directs will be for you or the one who takes care of him. He will never initiate by self-talking. This early means of communication, also called ‘protoconversation’, is for you to talk back to him which is why your response is very important. It will provide a base for you both to engage in a real conversation when he grows.

The Needy Sign:

Once your baby is six months old it will become evident to you that when you are not around he gets upset. He may show signs like crying or scrunching up his face as soon as you leave his room and start smiling again once you get back to him. This is a definite sign of his attachment growing for you which in turn indicates how much he loves and needs you.

The Imitation Sign:

You may see that your growing child tries to copy your hair fixing in front of the mirror or opening the main door with the keys that you carry. This copying of your behaviour not only shows sincere flattery but also love and respect that your toddler has for you.

The Protection Sign:

It is not uncommon for your baby to turn his face and bury it into your chest as soon as he sees someone strange and new in front of him. This is a phase in his developmental stage known as ‘stranger anxiety’ and is absolutely normal since his seeking protection from you simply implies he trusts and loves you enough to look up to you for safety . Such safety is also sought when you are out in public and he sees danger approaching him in the shape of something like a huge dog. He begs you to hold and keep him close to you. These are signs of his love, respect and faith in you.

The Comforting Sign:

Your child needs to be comforted when he thinks he has been hurt in some way or needs reassurance for something that he thinks he is doing right. He will cry if trips onto something asking you to take him into your arms and cuddle him or wants you to kiss his favourite toy good-night. They signify that you are important enough to be let into his world and that he loves you so much that you are allowed to know what he needs.

  1. I remember during the first month of my son’s birth I thought he neither loves me nor recognises me (I was so freaked out and would even cry sometimes) but that first smile cleared all my doubts 🙂
