Baby Bonding and Attachment: Getting parenting off to a good start.

Food for Thought: "In the early months, in most families, the mother-infant attachment is more obvious and more intense than that between father and infant. This does not mean that fathers do not become deeply attached to their babies, but it is a different type of attachment. It's neither of lesser quality than a mother's nor better. It's just different." 

~ William Sears, MD and Martha Sears, RN, ‘The Attachment Parenting Book’. 

It is important to encourage both parents to connect with their baby, each in their own unique way. Each parent brings something wonderful to the growing relationship, something a child will treasure for a life time.
