Happy Celebrate Babies Week!
The week of October 19th is Celebrate Babies Week! This year’s theme is “Embracing the Essential Role of the Caregiver.” During the pandemic, our caregivers have been essential workers, supporting the social and emotional growth of our babies every day during a stressful time.
As we recognize the vital role of caregivers to babies, we invite you to join our webinar, in partnership with NJ-AIMH, MSU CAECMH, C.I.T.E., NJAEYC, SPAN and NJ Breastfeeding Coalition, on Friday, October 23rd at 1PM, Dr. Gerard Costa, Director of the Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health at Montclair State University, will be discussing the science behind the essential role of the caregiver in all aspects of infant and toddler development, health and well-being. Register today!
Join the Conversation! Throughout the week, ACNJ and partners will be posting a guiding principle of infant mental health along with a resource. Use the hashtags #CelebrateBabiesWeek #CaregiversAreEssential to follow along and share/retweet posts highlighting infant mental health!
