Your baby is just waking up from a nap, and you tiptoe carefully into the room. You walk up to the crib, look over the rail, and you see a glimmer of a smile from your baby — a gift from baby to you. Is baby as attached to you as you are to him? Yes, but you are each attached for different reasons. Unlike adults, babies do not make attachments based solely on love; they also feel a biological imperative to bond.
