Storyboard Text

  • Bonding is not important in the first 12 months?
  • According to research conducted by UC Davis Medical Center, bonding is essential for normal infant development. Babies that are comforted and have bonded with the caregiver during the first six months will grow to be more secure and confident as toddlers and for the years to come.
  • When mothers respond to their babies' needs, it increases the likelihood of them forming healthy relationships with others throughout their life. This is why the majority of U.S. hospitals provide mothers and babies with the most amount of time they can spend together and this also applies to babies who are premature or ill.
  • Having fathers bond with their baby is also important. Like mothers, fathers also need their alone time with the baby to hold, comfort, and talk to the baby.
  • Bonding is essential in the first 12 months. Babies who are neglected and are not provided love and attention cannot regulate their own feelings. In addition, babies can experience high levels of stress which releases the hormone cortisol, which can hurt the babies immune system. Having brothers and sisters spend time with the baby is also essential as it will allow loving relationships to grow.
  • To conclude, bonding is extremely important in the first 12 months as without the bonding it can affect the baby to form healthy relationships as an adult. Babies need comfort, love, and attention especially when they cry. Having the entire family give proper care and love to the baby will help the baby be secure and develop a trusting relationship which will help them not only in school but throughout their life.
