Touchpoints with Dr. T. Berry Brazelton

Dr. Brazelton, one of the best-known pediatricians, describes challenges that arise when spurts in development bring a new sense of independence in young children. He refers to these times as touchpoints, when parents must decide how to support the child's development. In the first video, Pregnancy, Birth, and the First Weeks of Life, Dr. Brazelton explains how to interpret infant behavior. The second video, The First Month through the First Year, reviews the growth of independence in young children. Dr. Brazelton demonstrates how to comfort a fussy baby. The third video, One Year through Toddlerhood, focuses on limit setting with young children as well as ways to encourage toilet learning.
