What babies really need

Babies need food, somewhere to sleep, and to be kept warm. Air, water, sleep and food and excretion are metabolic requirements for survival in all humans. Clothing and shelter provide necessary protection from the elements. These are babies basic physical needs or physiological needs.
Babies need safety, which meets their security needs.
Babies need to be loved, these are their social needs. Your baby needs you or a significant other to give them a sense of belonging!

Babies need:
  • food - which is milk, until 6 months of age
  • a place to sleep - usually a cot, in some cultures a hammock
  • clothing 

Babies do not need hundreds of toys.
