From an article published in Psychology Today, research about what babies need (and don’t need). Some suggestions seem obvious while others may spark debate. I’m curious to know what my readers think and why. I was surprised at first about #2 (Never let a baby cry) but was reassured when what was meant was to minimize situations that cause crying, and observing and paying attention are the way to do that. When you establish communication and routine and get to know the baby, everyone can be more at ease.
