Love or Food?

A couple who are friends of friends had a baby a month ago - and have not yet named him. I was really shocked to hear this and worry that this is a sign that the parents have not bonded well with the baby and while he may well be getting all he needs physically, I strongly suspect that he is being neglected emotionally.

My friend, who doesn't have much experience with babies, commented, "Isn't a baby more interested in food at that age?" To be honest I was too flabbergasted to summon much of a meaningful reply, and still am.

No way should a baby have to choose between Love and Food!

Happy parenting,
