My summation of the nine month old and mom
I think this is where I write my comments. Anyway, I enjoyed Dr. Brazelton's way of talking and softly getting to know Felix and then I noticed the toys were definitely an icebreaker. Also, he was able to test the different stages Felix was in like object permanence, and storage as the child tried to figure out what to do with more than three objects.
He also relieved the mom of her guilt of not always being there because she was a working mom and went to school. I think she felt better about her abilities as a mom after talking to him and realizing that she had ways to calm herself just like Felix had figured out to self soothe with his thumb.
