Time for Bonding

1a Time for Bonding (0-3 month old)

  • Your baby is learning the rhythms of sleep, feeding, digestion and elimination
  • When wake, she needs to be held cuddled and talked to
  • Getting to know her rhythms and responding to her needs develops trust and binding
  • You are your baby’s most important and favourite toy
  • Touch your baby with love and wonder – your baby will know she is loved and safe
  • Spend time being present, watching your baby and copying his facial expressions and sounds
  • Pausing,waiting for his response and taking turns is the dance of connection
