When infants are born they rely on a caregiver to meet both their physical
and emotional needs. These needs include food, safety and comfort.
Attachment describes the emotional bond between an infant and a
caregiver. Infant-caregiver interactions shape the attachment relationship.
Primary care-givers are not only biological parents and can include a
variety of people such as grandparents or foster parents.
