I've been guilty of having bad habits my whole life. When I was a kid, I bit my nails. As a teenager, I lived contently in a room full of clothes cover every surface. And now as an adult, I have been plagued with the resting b*tch face, which is to say, not matter my mood, when I'm not engaged in conversation my expression is a bit curt. I'm aware that adults pick up on this B face, but I wonder if my kids do too. Without realizing it, you may have habits that make your baby think you're upset, when that's not the case at all.
In all fairness, moms get upset too, which is completely normal and fine. In fact, it would be to your child's benefit for you to model healthy ways to express anger and disappointment. However, there are plenty of instances when you're not mad at all, but your little nugget perceives you to be upset. Ever heard the saying, "it's not what you said, it's the way you said it?" This rings true for communicating with babies as well, since they are more intuitive than you might know. In actuality, your baby can pick up on these six habits you may not even realize you have, and start to think mama's in a mood.
