Sabre Tooth Tigers & Teddy Bears

The connected baby guide to understanding attachment

by Dr Suzanne Zeedyk

This guide introduces readers to attachment – the need that all babies have to know that someone will share their fears and joys. It uses the analogy of “sabre tooth tigers & teddy bears”, in order to make the concepts of attachment accessible to as wide an audience as possible.

The public often finds information about attachment both compelling and sobering. It gives them unexpected glimpses into their own lives, and its relevance for policies quickly becomes glaringly obvious. They frequently ask, “How come no one tells us this stuff?”. This guide is an attempt to tell more people about this stuff.

The guide is written in a style that makes it suited to professional or personal interests. Parents will find the information in it as relevant to their lives as will nursery staff, childminders, health visitors, midwives, family support workers, teachers and all other professionals who work with children.

Chapter titles include

  • What is attachment?
  • The neuroscience of attachment
  • Sharing emotional states
  • Laughter as resilience
  • Healing insecurity
  • Do we really get attachment?

Comments from readers

George Hosking, Chief Exec Officer of WAVE Trust: “I have never read a clearer explanation of the concept of attachment and why it matters in all our lives.”

Helen, mum of 9-month-old Daniel: “Reading this booklet was amazing. It felt like Suzanne was explaining to me what my baby can’t say himself.”
