Feeding Touchpoints

All last week I had training for a new part of my job I’ll be doing called Every Child Succeeds. It’s a research based home visitation program who partners up with Children’s Hospital and Proctor and Gamble. I love getting to learn about new things and also hearing new early childhood research.

Hands down my favorite researcher/ author in the field is T. Berry Brazelton. We often see videos of him in our trainings and he is gentle, child focused and loves attachment and families. I want him to be my grandpa and my kids’ pediatrician:) Here is a snapshot of him talking about his view of “touchpoints” (which he explains) in view of feeding.

    Thanks for sharing that Jackie! I understand what you mean when you say that you want him to be your grandpa and you children’s pediatrician!

    Jackie! I love him too. He came to Waco and spoke at a benefit for the therapeutic daycare my supervisor founded and I do a lot of work at (Talitha Koum, look it up if you are bored). If I remember correctly, he might be from Waco, or has some connection with us anyway. I love attachment too. :) Did you know that’s what a lot of the child therapy I do is based on? I’ve done therapy with kids and their parents quite a bit in order to help their attachment. If you’ve ever heard of Theraplay, that’s what I usually do. Anyway, sounds like fun training!
