Children are gifts. Everybody wants his child to turn out to be healthy in his habits and easy to live with. If you want your child to grow a healthy person you should take care of him. Every baby needs to be smiled at, talked to, played with, fondled-gently and lovingly – just as much as he needs vitamins and calories. This will make him a person who loves people and enjoys life. The baby who doesn’t get any loving will grow up cold and unresponsive. So if you are having baby in your house, allot some time in your daily life and spend your time with your baby and make him happy. You will find that it is a refreshing experience to you- keeps you smiling.
