Hello git-friends,

I have a question regarding fetching changes from a parent branch.

Imagine the following situation: I have a branch called "develop" - I 
create a new branch like this:

git checkout -b newbranch

 I do some work there. After some time I switch back to the develop branch:

git checkout develop

No I do some work here and commit. After some time I want to switch back to 
my 'newbranch' idea.

git checkout newbranch

How do I now make sure that I fetch all changes I did in the meantime from 
the parent branch (in this case 'develop')... is it that I have to 

git merge --no-ff develop

or is there a better way?

Thank you very much in advance!
