What To Do:
- Constantly observe baby. When he is displaying an emotion such as distress, disgust, or interest, respond immediately.
- Using your knowledge of the situation, describe and label the infant’s emotions. For example,
- “Maddie, you are crying. You must be hungry. Let’s warm a bottle and eat.”
- “Isaac, you are smiling. You are happy. You like when daddy holds you in his arms.”
