Mothering: The infant daycare experiment includes related articles on attachment in babies and government policies and babies by Peg Lopata, findarticles.com,
Winter 1993
While we say we are concerned about families and children, we in fact value the worker above the parent. If we cared seriously about our nation's children, we would be busily reorganizing the economy to benefit families--rather than reorganizing families to fit the 9-to-5 economy, and then applying Band-Aid solutions such as increased government daycare funding.

Dr. Penelope Leach--who has been studying infants, not daycare--offers (this) perspective. "We've let ourselves be conned into believing that a commercial, professional children's world is best for kids," she explains. "But daycare can seldom provide the one-on-one interaction infants need."

Others contend that high-quality daycare in the first year is not harmful. Most families, however, discover that high-quality daycare is like Mary Poppins*--a fantasy. One mother of a three year old who used infant daycare notes bitterly: "All that reading I did to find out how to choose good daycare was a waste of time. What it boils down to around here is when you can find an opening."
*Mary Poppins = A fictitious, magical nanny featured the the  book, Mary Poppins  by  P.L. Travers.  It was made into a movie by Walt Disney in 1964.

Waldorf* educator Rahima Baldwin (says), "The baby in its first year of life is still totally connected to the mother's vital energy and nurtured by it. Fulltime daycare is a shock for the baby and can cause a tearing of the etheric** sheath surrounding the baby.
*Waldorf schools are based on the education ideas of Rudolph Steiner, an early-20th-century Austrian philosopher. According to Waldorf pedagogy, education has to cater to and nurture a child physically, emotionally and mentally.

**Etheric = Heavenly, Celestial

While some infants reared out of the home may get some of their basic needs met, they will rarely get the loving attention that can only be given by a person irrationally in love with and immersed in them--their "psychological touchstone." This type of loving attention unfolds from unqualified devotion extending far beyond liking a child to being palpably and unconditionally interested in that child's most subtle physical and psychological signals. A secure attachment to mother during infancy helps us form healthy attachments to loved ones in later years.
