So much of bonding and attachment revolve around food. Meeting needs and holding time are so important, but for many kids from hard places, for kids who have been through trauma, food can be a form of comfort. One of the things we do with baby J to promote bonding is to feed him…

So many things happen around food… we see smiles, we are building trust, getting eye contact, and he sits with us. All things that are good for attachment!

Just like our little M, food is definitely the way to our boy’s heart!
