Importance of parent-baby relationship explained

From the moment your baby is born, they’re ready to communicate with you.

Their movements, their cries, their smiles – every action your baby makes has meaning.

They’re also very good at telling you what they like, and what they don’t like.

Understanding your baby’s cues may be overwhelming at first, but is crucial to developing a strong and healthy relationship.

She spoke with Jake Morcom about identifying the needs of your baby and how exactly the parent/infant attachment begins.
