Being a new parent can be exhausting. Babies are a ton of work; their tiny bodies require a lot of care and attention. The number of diapers parents have to change is astronomical, and the amount of crying they do doesn’t help either. Babies will cry if they are hungry, upset, or don’t feel good; the possibilities are endless. At the end of the day, new parents will do anything for their newborn babies, especially when they are crying.
The solutions for stopping a baby from crying are endless. A bottle, toy, teething ring, food, new diaper, blanket, or even a dog! Sometimes the family pet is the best therapy for a crying baby. Often parents are apprehensive of letting their dog meet the newborn in the family. This is a common reaction to the intended interaction between the baby and the dog. The outcome can go one of two ways: good or not so good. The dog could be aggressive towards the baby or even protective of the family. Contrastingly, the situation could end up being positive; the baby and the dog could end up being best friends.
Dogs can be some of the best animals with kids. Having a pooch in the household can be one of the best experiences a family can share together. Often times pups are very therapeutic for a family. Kids connect with these pets on a different level. The traits children learn from owning a dog are unbeatable. They learn how to take care of a living thing, which is essential for life. Even though feeding and picking up after a dog seems irritating at times, at the end of the day it builds the child’s character.
In the video below you can see the magic of a dog. When a new mom was having a difficult time soothing her newborn baby, the family dog saved the day!
The video displays a tiny baby lying on its back crying while the white pooch made its way over to the child’s side. The next part is shocking, the pup starts to howl, and the babies reaction is priceless. The baby stops crying! Maybe it distracted the child or maybe the child just enjoyed the howling, whatever the reasoning, it worked. The new momma has to be thankful for her sweet pup’s efforts.
These two will definitely grow up to be the best of friends. It is amazing how dogs can be so therapeutic for human beings. Watch the video below and share with dog lovers!
