What is Attachment?

Psychologist Nur Dinçer Genç says, “Attachment is a positive, healthy and strong emotional bond between the child and his or her father or carer”. “The baby can continue his life with this attachment. Attachment is two-sided and is increasingly strengthened by both sides meeting each other's needs. As the baby is touched and talked with compassion and love and needs are met, the mother or carer will be more attached, and as the mother responds to the baby, there will be a stronger bond between them. ”

Attachment Types

  • The first type is a trust-based model. The mother understands the needs of the child, gives the right response in time and makes the child feel safe. When the child cries, he approaches him with compassion.
  • The second type has distance coupling. The mother does not accept the child's efforts to approach herself and behaves at a distance. The needs of the child are ignored by the mother. The type of child avoiding this type of attachment occurs. The child avoids expressing his / her feelings to the mother and becomes a type who cannot express his / her feelings in adulthood.
  • Another type of attachment is that the mother is unstable. Sometimes the child is overly caring and sometimes the mother does not react to any need. Since the child does not know how the mother will react and whether her needs will be met in this situation, this type of attachment results in a worried, non-stressful structure in the future.

Psychologist Nur Dinçer Genç says: “Some opinions say that the relationship that a person has with his mother during infancy determines the nature of the relationship with other people during adulthood. What kind of attachment children show until the age of 1 may have a significant impact on their future lives. Attachment should be neither more nor less, enough. If attachment occurs in a healthy way, the child will be able to establish sound social relationships, have a healthy mental life, develop problem-solving skills and become a safe adult. The mother and father should be able to answer the child's needs correctly and establish a close relationship. He should respond to the crying or scared child in a timely manner and be able to calm his worries. These responses should be continuous and the child should know that they can see the same approach from their parents each time. Raising children is a process that starts during pregnancy. As the mother recognizes and defines her own feelings correctly, she will create a healthier mother model for her baby. If he avoids recognizing and ignoring them, if he does not receive support, it will be inevitable that there will be a period of tension and stress and that this will affect the baby. Bonding is the result of mutual interaction. Attachment will affect the mother's behavior and attitudes as well as the baby's characteristics. ”

During the period up to 1 year old parents should pay attention to:

  • Physical contact with the baby in the first hours after birth (mother and father)
  • Stimulating the hungry baby with a nipple to invite a sucking reflex
  • Frequent body contact
  • Eye to eye communication
  • Responding to crying 'behaviors'
  • Voluntary interaction with the baby, not only in moments of need but also without need
  • Mother and father playing interactive games with baby
