This storyboard does not have a description.
Babies can generally be comforted by anyone as their attachment is said to be indiscriminate because it is not significantly different for anyone person.
I show the most sensitivity to his needs.
Babies produce similar responses to objects and people but generally do not prefer specific people to others.
Babies become more social able and can tell people apart. They show a preference for people rather than objects and they have no fear of strangers or separation anxiety.
2 changes happen at around 7 months old. Babies show separation anxiety and stranger anxiety. They have formed a specific and primary attachment to one particular individual. They use familiar adults as a secure base.
Multiple attachments happen after the first attachment has been made. The baby will show attachment behaviours towards several different people (family). This tends to occur before 18 months old. Also, their fear-of-strangers response weakens.
