Join us as we discuss the needs and the benefits of nurturing touch! Nurturing touch helps meet a baby’s need for physical contact, affection, security, stimulation and movement. Parents who choose a nurturing approach to physical interactions with their children promote the development of healthy attachments. Even as children get older, their need to stay connected through touch remains strong.
