Loving Your Baby

Consistent Caregivers, Healthy Relationships and More

API's Eight Principles of Parenting are recommended companion readings as the foundation and context for all of our research-based resources.

Babies and young children depend on a consistent, loving, responsive caregiver for survival. These important early relationships also "train" the baby's nervous system to manage relationships and stress.

Responsive care filled with play and loving interactions help babies develop positive relationships, a healthy sense of self and beneficial stress management skills.
