2. Be careful in meeting your child's call and try to understand why he cries:

Most of the communication signals of a newborn are through crying and screaming. So the mother needs to understand the underlying reason for crying to know how and when to intervene. Often this crying is either because the baby needs to be breastfed or clean or because he is sleepy.

4. reduce social relations:

Do not hesitate to apologize to your guests for not being able to receive them in case their visit will greatly affect your rest time and sleep.

Warm up and prepare him to start his day, the bright atmosphere, the play and the surrounding sounds will all mean to the child that this is the morning time.
