Attachment Parenting
Baby Love is an attachment-based program to help caregivers give their babies a better start in life; one that supports better health, better relationships and better learning. It helps parents recognize that babies have minds, that babies “talk” to us and that they need us to respond.  Babies who start off well are likely to do better for the rest of their lives.
