You are My Sunshine

You can’t spoil a child by responding to their needs.  Crying or fussing is your baby’s way of communicating hunger, discomfort or insecurity.  To develop a secure and healthy relationship between you and your baby:

  • always respond to their needs;
  • touch and snuggle during feeding, quiet time or play;
  • smile, play, read, talk or sing face-to-face with your child; and
  • have skin-to-skin contact.
