Ever notice how just when you think you've got your little one's sleep routine down to a science, something like Daylight Savings Time comes along to mess it all up?

Don't worry - in this edition of my Healthy Little Note I've got some tips for you on how to plan for it and avoid a week of upset sleep. Plus, a breakdown of the best indoor play places, and some toys I recommend (and ones to avoid!).     
 
Here we go…

4. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A "SECURE ATTACHMENT" AND "ATTACHMENT PARENTING"

“Secure attachment” and “attachment parenting” are completely different, and yet it is often thought to have a “secure attachment” you need to adhere to “attachment parenting.”

This misconception leads parents down a path of worrying that they are doing something “wrong.”

While I loved this entire Developmental Science article...if you’re going to read one section to get a better understanding of the topic read: Why the confusion about a secure attachment?
