Emotionally Strong Baby

Between 6 to 12 months your baby may start to express discomfort or display emotions such as anger and fear. During this time, they will look to you for security especially in times of uncertainty. That’s why it is critical during this period to establish a strong bond with your little one and build a safe, secure and positive environment so that he can grow healthily.

Establish rules on behaviour

  • Reinforce good behaviour by clapping your hands, smiling at him and praising his actions
  • Discourage negative behaviour by using a firm tone and expression and ignore him for a while before reassuring him that you still love him
  • Tell your little one what he should do and model that behaviour so that he can copy it

Build a happy and supportive environment

  • Maintain a positive and supportive relationship among family members to promote positive emotions
  • Avoid conflicts in front of your baby
  • Encourage members of the family to engage and play with your baby to help him create happy memories and build self-confidence.
  • Manage negative emotions and calm yourself down before you tend to your baby

Always remember that as your child grows and develops, he will also become more sensitive to his surroundings. That’s why it’s essential to help make him feel safe, loved and secured by maintaining a positive home environment, so he can grow up to be a well rounded individual.

Breastmilk is the ideal food for infants: it is best adapted to their specific needs. A healthy and balanced diet of the mother is important for the preparation and continuation of breastfeeding. Mixed breastfeeding can interfere with breastfeeding and reduce milk production. It’s hard to reverse the choice of not breastfeeding. If an infant formula is used for a non-breastfed baby, it is important to carefully observe the instructions for preparation and use and to follow the advice of the medical profession. Incorrect use could pose a risk to the child’s health. Socio-economic implications must be considered in the use of infant formula. After 6 months, in addition to breastmilk, water is the only essential drink. Do not hesitate to consult your health care professional if you need advice on feeding your baby.
