Babies are different from adults. They prosper with respect for their space, and exquisitely sensitive skin, eyes, ears and taste. They have urgent attachment needs, can be adorable or highly demanding and exhausting. Once calm, they have the capacity to be playful, even at birth. This is the basis of future thoughtfulness, relatedness and creativity. How come with all the books and advisors available to parents, so much that is the basis of the adult is passed over while attention is focussed on the immediate vegetative functioning?
