This short video shows dads bonding with babies. It explains how eye contact, cuddling, talking and smiling strengthen your bonds with your baby and help your baby grow and develop. Your baby loves the sound of your voice, so try talking about everyday things, reading together and singing to baby – even if you’re off-key!
