I’m excited to share with you Renee Bock’s article on baby socialization.  Renee and I worked side-by-side directing the Explore + Discover infant and toddler center, where we nurtured and celebrated baby friendships from birth. I also nurture this concept in the Parent Infant Toddler Classes I currently teach. This article discusses different developmental milestones in play and helps us focus on all the amazing things newborns can do. This was featured on and the direct link can be found here:
