The Natural Child Project says: Our vision is a world in which all children are treated with dignity, respect, understanding, and compassion.
In such a world, every child can grow into adulthood with a generous capacity for love and trust.
HUG Your Baby's mission: Based on child development, lactation and pediatric literature, HUG Your Baby’s trainings and resources help parents (and the professionals who care for them) understand a baby’s body language in order to prevent and solve problems around eating, sleeping, crying, and parent-child interaction and bonding.
Dr. Stanley I. Greenspan, a renowned expert on childhood development and the importance of emotions and relationships between child and parent, shows how to recognize communicative gestures and cues from even the very youngest infants.
