Meeting my first niece, nervous as hell

Unread postby Nostalgia » 5th December, 2017, 9:19 am

Hello,

I'm 21 and Friday I will be traveling to my home country from Dec 8 to Dec 20. My brother and his wife just had a girl this past july which means I am an uncle now.

I've never been really good with kids and babies and I wouldn''t know how to approach her and I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo nervous :noes: :noes: :noes: :noes:

Likeeee, how do you talk to or hold a baby? :noes:

halppppp!!

Talk to a baby like you would talk to a cute little puppy, such as little playful noises or words. Also you don't have to hold her, she could lay on the ground and you could tickle her stomach, touch her nose and giggle, etc.
Holding them requires neck and back support for them usually, so either cradle them or have them on your knee/thigh with your back against you if they can sit up with support

She's a baby; there is no special way to approach her lol :rofl2: Just talk to her and make her smile. To hold her, just make sure her underside and back is supported. You can hold her like this:

She's not even 6 months old and wouldn't have a clue who you are and what's going on.
