What is my baby saying?

Cues are your baby’s way of trying to tell you what he or she needs.

Although it may take a few weeks to get to know your baby’s cues, or non-verbal language, if you do some baby-watching, you will be amazed at how even very young babies can give clear signals that they want to interact, would prefer to be given a break from play, are tired or hungry.

Responding to your baby’s cues (day and night), will help your baby develop a sense of trust in his ability to influence his environment and will help him form a secure attachment to you.

These are important prerequisites for later emotional development and relationships. Your responsiveness will also help your baby learn what psychologists call ‘emotional regulation’ which is the capacity to understand that we have control over our emotions.

As you soothe your baby, you are teaching him that when he is upset, he can calm down. When babies’ signals are ignored, and they escalate to cries that are not responded to, the baby fails to develop the understanding that he can regulate his own emotions.
