Janet Lansbury

When we perceive our infants as capable, intelligent, responsive people ready to participate in life, initiate activity, receive and return our efforts to communicate with them, then we find that they are all of those things. I am not suggesting that we treat infants as small adults. They need a baby’s life. But they deserve the same level of human respect that we give to adults. If you asked (and they could answer), here are some examples they might offer of baby care that reflect that respect:

  • Tell me what’s going on
  • Give me attention
  • Hear me, don’t just fix me
  • Let me create and initiate my own activities
  • Trust me with the truth
