I have been using Hug Your Baby in my other classes. I remember I was conducting a training class last year. One mother brought her 1 year old baby with her for the 3 day workshop. There were 20 adults in the venue and hers was the only baby. The baby was very quiet during our class. After I explained baby "SOS", we observed the baby's behaviour. We watched the mother try to make eye contact with her baby. But, the baby showed us "switching-off" and did not engage with her mother. It was an amazing experience to all of us. We discussed the baby's behaviour. We concluded that baby was overstimulated by all the strangers and nosies although she did not cry out. This baby was a lesson to all of us. We understood that observing baby's behaviour is so important!
