More and more, I see babies being over-stimulated with toys that talk, light up, and are connected to iPods and DVDs.
There are toys that babies can push, which will create a sound from toy and the TV. They are put in front of these external stimuli with a pacifier, yet we wonder why children grow up with ADHD ? We are pairing external stimuli with oral satisfaction, yet we wonder why our culture has a severe epidemic of obsessive overeating?
What happened to allowing a baby to feel his or her body? Their mother’s body? To hearing the intimate conversation of friends and family? What happened to quiet times, walks in nature, with maybe a rattle to distract when needed? What happened to allowing a baby to cry when hungry, wet, or when needing human contact and comfort?
Constant distraction prevents a baby from internally trusting their wants and needs. The baby learns to externally crave distraction and satisfaction. Babies are babies. What is the rush to socialize them?
