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.

The CuddleBright™ Experience is truly a life-saver! Our sobbing day care drop-offs have transformed into happy, loving goodbyes thanks to the A Cuddle Before I Go book and the tips and tricks I learned from the CuddleBright™ Parenting Guide. I can’t thank you enough!

This Mama is singing your praise! I can’t tell you what it means to be able to leave the house without feeling guilty and sad. When I am calm our whole family is happier thanks to the rituals and routines of the CuddleBright™ Experience.

- Susie C., mom to Caroline, 3

The ‘Eyes and Ears’ section of the CuddleBright™ Parenting Guide really spoke to us. Putting down our phones and giving our son our undivided attention has helped us learn to be present as a family and really see not just him, but each other, too.

- David H., dad to Avery 5 and Peter 2

The CuddleBright™ Experience has made such a difference in our daily life that we even ordered a spare CuddleBright™ Lovie, just in case!

Getting Started: Building Bonds

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.

Getting Started: Routines and Rituals

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.

Getting Started: Transitional Objects

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.
