Nurturing is about the loving, caring, trusting relationship (attachment) between you and your baby. It is a relationship that will exist your whole lives, wherever you both may be.
Early experience is not fate. If you weren’t parented well, you can change the pattern and be the loving, sensitive parent you want to be. The most important factor when it comes to the relationship you have with your child is how well you’ve made sense of your experiences with your own parents.
