The Normal Process of Mother Child Bonding
Normal Mother Child Bonding Process
The maternal drive gives the mother energy to care for baby
Newborn parenting, is where the responsibilities of parenthood begins. After the newborn is born the mother child bond continues from pregnancy outside of the womb. A newborn's basic needs are food, sleep, comfort and cleaning which the parent provides. An infant's only form of communication is crying, and attentive parents will begin to recognize different types of crying which represent different needs such as hunger, discomfort, boredom, or loneliness. Newborns and young infants require feedings every few hours which is disruptive to adult sleep cycles. They respond enthusiastically to soft stroking, cuddling and caressing. Gentle rocking back and forth often calms a crying infant, as do massages and warm baths. Newborns may comfort themselves by sucking their thumb or a pacifier. The need to suckle is instinctive and allows newborns to feed. Breastfeeding is the recommended method of feeding by all major infant health organizations. If breastfeeding is not possible or desired, bottle feeding is a common alternative.
Treatment Now Effects the Infant's Future Personality
The forming of attachment outside of the womb between mother and infant is considered to be the foundation of the infant/child's capacity to form and conduct relationships throughout life. Attachment is not the same as love and/or affection although they often go together. Attachments develop immediately and a lack of attachment or a seriously disrupted capacity for attachment could potentially do serious damage to a child's health and well-being. Physically one may not see symptoms or indications of a disorder but emotionally the child may be affected. Studies show that children with secure attachment have the ability to form successful relationships, express themselves on an interpersonal basis and have higher self-esteem. Conversely children who have caregivers who are neglectful or emotionally unavailable can exhibit behavioral problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder or oppositional-defiant disorder.
Oppositional-defiant disorder is a pattern of disobedient, hostile, and defiant behavior toward authority figures that adopted children much suppress to comply with the adoptive parent. When the adopted child is an adult the defiance of authority figures represents the child's suppress self and all authority figures represent the adopted parent's domination and control over the child, making the adoptive child see a threat to his autonomy or independence.
