The NBO is a individualized infant focused family-centered tool that was designed to help illuminate each baby’s unique capabilities and individual responsiveness by exposing them to various stimulation. The NBO is based on 30+ years of research & made up of 18 behavioral observations which illuminate the abilities of newborns and the neruro-developmental foundation of alertness, responsiveness, and regulation.
The goal is to observe & create awareness of your baby’s responses and abilities so that you can interpret, understand & respond optimally to Your baby! Your relationship with your baby will develop more easily & flow more smoothly if you understand a few why, what, and how-to’s of interacting with them. The NBO works by revealing aspects of early personality by observing behaviors & responses during requests for alertness, attention & as well as reflexive response. Setting expectations for yourselves, learning how & when to intervene, & timing your interactions successfully will provide a positive base of confidence, emotional support & trust from the start.
