I am way bigger than a baby. I try to always keep this in mind while working with infants. The one question I keep at the center of all of my interactions with babies in care is how would I like to be treated by a giant? Would I like to be picked up without notice? Would I like it if the giant's movements were too quick for me to follow? I would not, nor do I think many people would. The next time you are interacting with an infant, ask yourself how you would like to be treated if you were in their position and proceed accordingly.
