The Importance of Touch
When your baby was born, she immediately started learning about her world through her Attachment and Trust and Sensory Exploration experiences with you, her primary caregiver. From 0-3 months, you will see your baby adapt to and process various experiences through her different senses, including touch, sight, smell, hearing, and taste. You will notice her turning her head towards familiar sounds and noises she hears (e.g. your voice, the family dog barking), looking at objects within 8"-12" (e.g. your face when you cuddle her up close), and sucking or turning towards mom's breast when she smells the scent of breast milk (e.g. her natural rooting reflex).
