If you're afraid of hurting a baby, supervision is a good thing. Try snuggling up in your favorite seat or on a couch, you can hold her more securely there. Not sure how old ya are but just ask what's ok, should be fine. If you're still afraid to hold the baby, you can also play with the little one while they're laying in something secure like a bed or baby holder. You don't have to hold if you don't want.

Talk to your mum or dad, let them know what's up. You sound like you want to be close but just want to be careful. Parents can work with that :)

Look at a distance. You can touch or be near. Try to not hold or anything until they are older. Newborns are actually really tough in general (I'd know, I'm a father) but really, the issue is hygiene. They can get sick so don't interact too much until 3-4 months or so. Then you'll be much better. Always give them distance after they get Vaccinations because Vaccines will weaken the child and make them sick for some time. They can have adverse reactions and get extremely high fevers that cause permanent brain damage. This is because they are essentially putting a half-dead virus into their bloodstream. It's risky. We waited until our daughter had a developed immune system before putting her through that, but chances are, your parents haven't done their research and are just Vaccinating at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, and again at 24 months. It's really not good for the child but what you can do for them is to make sure you have good hygiene and stay away during the first few months of their life. Other than that, don't worry about the baby getting a bump or two on the head. It's super common and they're very resilient.

I always stayed away from my younger cousins because I felt the same way and now I have like no relationship with them at all.

My advice would to be try and hold her and stuff while an adult is around. They'll help you and make sure nothing bad happens. Then hopefully you'll learn and get used to her and you won't be afraid anymore :)

It seems you've just had a bout of bad luck but I would say go for it. If you've never held a child/kid whatever, just sit on the floor or a nice big couch/chair and watch them. See how they react to you and how your body reacts to them. I can't totally relate because I don't have a little sister but I do have smaller children (1&2 Y/O's) and when I first held them the only thing that played through my mind was me holding and dropping them... A lot. If you don't think your ready just give it some times. There's nothing wrong with just watching her while others are holding her or shes in her crib/whatever you put her in...

I hope this helps??? IDK I'm in a helpful mood today.
