How many times do you hold your baby or try to play with him and he starts pinching and punching you?! Your baby isn’t aware yet that he can hurt you; he just wants to play! However, you should start to teach your baby how to be gentle since his very little age. Try the “gentle hands” game; it’s so simple!
Take your baby’s hands and gently stroke them over your arms or face, saying: gentle hands, gentle hands.
Praise your baby whenever he is gentle with you and with other children!
