In brief: Relax & interact

Your baby will learn & prefer your voice to others within hours.
It will see well up to a foot so you can interact visually and begin teaching baby about facial expressions using your joy and smiles to trigger a mirrored response.These will take time to emerge so be patient.Some moms go thru "blues" after delivery & have ups & downs.Keep aleart to that possibility and contact your OB for problems.
