25 BONDING & GROWTH What is this bonding everyone talks about?
  • Bonding is an attachment to the baby that continues throughout life.
  • Bonding is a relationship based on an exchange through sensory experiences -- namely, holding, feeding, and loving -- between parent and child.
  • Bonding is a psychological connection between the parents and the baby.
  • It is the protective feelings of the parents and the infant's preference for her parents.
  • Bonding is what babies need to grow and trust. Babies need parents who are willing to bond.
  • It is nature's way of ensuring our survival.
  • Bonding is an inherent desire to care for and connect with your baby.
  • It is the invisible glue that keeps you close.
  • It is the need for close physical and emotional contact with the baby, the desire to touch, look at, and respond to the baby's cry.
  • It is reflecting your baby's smile so you and the baby feel connected.
  • Read the highly inspirational chapter, "Wholeness," in Polly Berends's Whole Child / Whole Parent, for a beautiful perspective on connectedness.
