What is Infant Emotional Development?
It’s a momentous occasion as your new baby enters this world and starts on the wonderful journey of life. It is also a time where you as parent are feeling overwhelmed with emotion, excited at this amazing new life, and probably more than a little fatigued too. Now if you are feeling all these things, just imagine what your little one must be experiencing!
Months of floating blissfully in the warm, safe and quiet environment of the womb has ended abruptly and your baby is suddenly faced with the rush and noise of the world where lights are bright, and all stimuli very new and somewhat overwhelming.
As you might imagine, this new wide world is a lot for your little one to take in and he or she may feel somewhat anxious and ‘lost’ despite your efforts to make them feel comforted and safe. While we don’t often think about it, as we cannot remember this stage of life ourselves, this beginning phase of life must be the biggest adjustment that a human being ever has to make!
Help for Infant Emotional Development
Using the essences of especially chosen flowers can help to safely help to ease your little one’s recovery from birth and adjustment to life outside the womb, giving him or her a sense of inner peace and the feeling of belonging in the universe. This will be a great aid in the infant’s emotional development. As Flower Essences use the vibrational energies of selected flowers to effect healing within the individual and do not contain any synthetic ingredients or even natural extracts of herbs, they are extremely safe for use in newborn babies.
Examples include Sweetpea flower essence which provides an internal sense of calmness and serenity and sense of belonging, while Thyme is an energizing essence which also enhances awareness of both the conscious and subconscious mind. Other essences that can aid your baby’s recovery from the birth process include Baeometra which helps to address fatigue and impart a sense of new promise and optimism, and Cauliflower essence which is specifically for shock sustained during the birth process.
