In this short video, dads show you how to hold a baby, especially when your baby is a newborn. The video shows you how to change holding positions – you might need to keep trying until you find one that your baby likes. Supporting the neck and head is important with newborns, and you need to take extra care with the soft spot on top of your baby’s head.
