Attachment Needs of Newborns

The infant/child’s earliest relationships with her primary caregivers are particularly profound because they shape - very literally - the neurochemistry of emotion and the entire nervous system, including the brain.



Myth: The Newborn's Senses and Feelings Are not Well Developed
Myth: The Newborn Has no Sensation, Emotional Affect, or Ability to Feel Pain or Pleasure
Myth: Separating Mother and Newborn after Birth Is Harmless
Myth: Hospital Nurseries Offer Newborns a Safe Haven
Myth: Hospital Nurseries Protect Infants from Infection
