How attachment comes to babies ...

From the first weeks of her life, your baby learns to eat but also to love, to love you. The emotional bonds are woven according to the answers that you bring to him daily.

The language of emotions

  • Watch your baby ... if he is peacefully in your arms, the phone rings and you put him in his chair and you move away, there is a good chance that his body stiffens, that he waved his arms, shouting and to cry. Another case, after a whole day spent with you, his face is calm, relaxed. Eyes in the eyes with you, he chirps and smiles.
  • In both of these situations, you are swimming in the obscure yet limpid world of signals that contribute to the creation of the child-parent bond. Your baby sends you signs for you only and you only know how to decrypt.
  • Because it is a question of language, of the language of emotions. These grimaces, these cries, these mimicry tell you what he feels. In terms of emotions, your baby is a champion. And the repertoire of ways he has to express them is much broader than you think.
  • Its well-being is manifested by a quiet sleep, a calm behavior. Awake, your baby looks around, follows the people around him, chirps, sways on his chair. And then, very quickly, if something disturbs him, you see him go from laughter to tears. The least frustration, the slightest lack, the least unpleasant sensation for him causes a change of attitude. And if, at that moment, you take him in your arms and speak to him, the balance returns. He deduces that you have heard him. He is calm. But before that, you have learned, or you are learning attachment. An entire program.
