The human brain is most malleable during infancy and early childhood. Here are three things you can be doing with your babies to ensure they are getting their mental health needs met.
1. Keep them close to your body so their nervous system can sense your presence and rely less on stress hormones.
2. Rock them and wear them around so they get the movement they need to develop their vestibular senses.
3. Mirror their emotional states so they can see that you are catching what they feel and are with them in it.
