Educating Guests About Handling Your Baby - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. It is really fun to have people come over and meet your new baby. And it is not really necessary for you to think that you are the ones that have to educate them about your baby and what is going on. Try to see it as just a fun time where you are introducing your baby, you are showing your baby off. Have fun. Trust that they know how to hold a baby. And, you know, the most important thing would be: get them to wash their hands before they touch the baby. And everybody kind of expects to do that. After that, just allow them to hold your baby. Do not be too overprotective because if you are too overprotective with guests, they are going to go home, they are going to get in their cars and they are going to talk about you.
