From the Experts
By emphasizing the emotional experience of infants and toddlers, CuddleBright™ Experience provides a unique roadmap to enhance parents’ connections to their children. These loving serve-and-return interactions early in life are beautifully illustrated and are fundamental to creating emotionally secure successful adults.
Michael Yogman MD, FAAP, Department of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School
As a pediatrician, I know the impact of the child’s experiences in the first years of life. Experiences organize the brain to develop the connections that allow future skill attainment and healthy social skills to deal with life’s challenges. The focus of the Simms/Mann Institute on disseminating and integrating knowledge of the crucial 0-3 years of development is expanding our ability to improve the health of the whole child and of every child.

To promote the importance of early childhood development, the Simms/Mann Institute is donating $1 million this year to early learning programs and brain science research.
Resources and Articles
Attachment is a deep, enduring emotional bond connecting one person to another across time and space. For a parent and child, it can start well before birth, but the real work of developing healthy attachments starts once baby arrives—ready to connect, observing the world around him, with you at the center of it all.
Routines are consistent ways to do daily tasks. They provide structure, consistency, and predictability. Routines are welcome comforts in your baby’s ever-changing world. The repetition of routines establishes order for your baby, which helps him navigate his day and makes it easier for you to guide him.
Like Charlie Brown’s best friend Linus and his blue security blanket, children often find comfort in the familiar, soft touch of a lovie or cuddly toy. These items are called transitional objects. Research indicates that a transitional object can be used as a source of comfort and as a way to stay connected to loved ones during times of separation and transition.
