Understanding Newborn's Emotions - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Our babies are letting us know constantly about their emotions and what they are feeling. So, babies can feel pain, babies can certainly feel joy, they really show a lot of satisfaction, especially after being fed. And what we want to do is just kind of key in to what they are letting us know. Because by showing emotions, what babies are letting us know is that that is fully their way of communicating, and it is really their only way of communicating early on. So when we think that they are in pain, when we see that there is a little discomfort, we want to embrace them and hug them and just do what we can to make them feel a great sense of joy and satisfaction.
