Many families are wary of cats and new born babies. The common thought is that a cat can suffocate the baby either due to jealousy or the smell of milk on the baby. Some families go as far as to get rid of the family pet.

The only reason that a cat likes to be near a baby is purely that it is a warm and snug place to be - not because it wishes any harm to the baby. The cat in wishing to be cosy and warm may therefore lay on or very near to the baby. The solution to this is to make sure that the baby is never left alone with the cat. As with any potential danger take precautions, if the baby is in a pram or cot use a cat net to deter the cat either indoors or outdoors (other neighbourhood cats but like the appeal of a nice warm pram!).

The cat needs to get used to the babys scent and accept the new arrival and to see that the baby poses no threat. Always closely supervise any introductions.

Some breeds may see the baby as competition for your attention, orientals can be particularly attached to their owners. But most cats are not as emotionally dependent as dogs and will accept that you have a new distraction. But do make sure you give your cat love and attention, but on your terms and not when the cat demands it. In doing this the cat will accept the baby as a friend and not a threat.

The reason for your cat's behaviour maybe due to an underlying medical reason. If you are concerned about your cat, always consult your vet or a cat behaviourist for professional, qualified advice.
