I am a new mom and I am wondering how I can encourage my baby to have a strong bond with other caregivers in his life, such as his grandparents or siblings. I understand that building relationships with other people besides me is important for my baby's development and socialization, but I am not sure how to go about it.
I currently live with my parents, who are very eager to spend time with their grandchild, but sometimes I feel like I am the only one who can calm him down or put him to sleep. I want to make sure that my baby feels comfortable and loved with his grandparents and other caregivers, but I also don't want to force him to be with them if he is not ready.
Do you have any tips or suggestions for how I can foster a strong bond between my baby and his grandparents or siblings? How much time should he be spending with them, and how can I convey to them how they can best care for him and support his development?
Thank you in advance for your help!
