Use Nurturing Touch Blog Carnival Deadline is This Friday

The fourth installment of the 2010 Attachment Parenting International Principles of Parenting Blog Carnivals is quickly approaching. This month’s blog carnival will focus on API’s 4th Principle of Parenting – Use Nurturing Touch – and the submission deadline is this Friday, May 14, 2010.

Here is an excerpt from API’s 4th Principle of Parenting:

Touch meets a baby’s needs for physical contact, affection, security, stimulation, and movement. Skin-to-skin contact is especially effective, such as during breastfeeding, bathing, or massage. Carrying or babywearing also meets this need while on the go. Hugs, snuggling, back rubs, massage, and physical play help meet this need in older children.

To submit a post for the Use Nurturing Touch Blog Carnival, please use the API Speaks Contact Form. Also review the blog carnival details to ensure that your post has the required text.
