Importance of Attachment between You and Your Baby
You may have heard how important it is for your baby to form an attachment to you as a parent.
According to Infant Mental Health Promotion,
“As a parent, you play a vital role in your child’s development. During the early years your relationship with your child and the experiences you provide will be the most influential during a period of rapid growth and development. What you do, and how you respond to your child can affect the way your child thinks, acts, and learns.” Source: Infant Mental Health Promotion Comfort, Play & Teach, 2012
