A strong relationship with your baby in the first year of life is an important foundation for their social, emotional and mental development.
Babies interact with their world through their senses. They fall in love with their parents/caregivers through sight, sound, touch, movement, taste and smell. Your interactions with them, teach them that they have a secure base from which to discover and explore the world, and a safe haven to return to.
Below are a list of websites that show how your baby’s brain continues to develop and ways in which you can build on your relationship with your baby.
