Mommy Monday: Your Newborn's Social Development

Posted:

Your new baby starts their social development as soon as he or she is born.

So don't think your newborn's earliest experiences don't matter.

Parents.com reports new research found the quality of a newborn's early emotional experiences deeply affects the brain's architecture.

But don't worry.

Researchers say it's easy to make sure your baby gets what he or she needs.

They just want to feel safe and secure.

So it's all about attachment.

Babies recognize faces and voices but also your smell!

So changing the baby, feeding the baby, snuggling with him or her really helps build that bond.

For extra reassurance, parents.com suggests leaving a scarf or T-shirt near the baby's crib so the baby can smell your scent.
