Baby 0-12 Months

Mental Well-being Resources for Parents

Each little moment of connection with your baby has a big impact on their brain development. When you engage in back-and-forth interactions with your child (“serve and return”) you are helping build a solid foundation for all future learning. When you show love and respond to your child’s needs, they learn they can count on you. Feeling secure in their relationships gives them confidence to explore their surroundings and cope with challenges. When babies feel secure, the magic of everyday moments helps build strong, healthy brains!
