I feel like my 8 month old baby & I haven't bonded since the birth & I was in the hospital for 18 days without her, how can I bond with her now?

Everday Activities. Bonding can occur between mother and baby with just everyday activities. Parents bond with activities like feeding, bathing, and playing. Give yourself time and let yourself off the hook. If this issue remains a problem you may want to seek counseling with someone skilled in postpartum depression.
