Your parents ,may have told you how to bring up a baby, you may have learned childcare at school but the fun and responsability really takes place when you are finally home and the midwife has discharged you and so has the health visitor after the intial visits.

10 facts follow below of what can happen to a baby if you are not a good mum or parent.

1.At every opportunity when you change baby, feed baby, bath and dress baby without talking to him/her just completing the task at hand to get it over with.-

2.You feed baby when you feel like it, leave baby alone in cot or pram crying for hours.
