Think Babies Tweet Week for Healthy Emotional Development
From November 26-30, ZERO TO THREE and partners shared their take on how policies - including home visiting, quality child care, paid leave, and nutrition - nurture a baby's emotional development.

Decades of science in early brain development tell us that children’s success in life is rooted in healthy emotional development from the start. Last week, ZERO TO THREE and our partners highlighted the central role of healthy emotional development in the growth and wellness of babies – and the need for policies that safeguard and nurture it.
We had more than 25 Think Babies™ partners participate and nearly 700 contributors to the conversation around #ThinkBabies. Over the course of the week, #ThinkBabies reached a potential audience of 5.4 million, spreading this vital message. You can view the entire #ThinkBabies conversation here.
Thank you to all of our partners and individuals who contributed to the amazing conversation on how policies can impact a baby’s healthy emotional development. While our tweet week may be over, we hope you will continue to Think Babies every day!
Monday: Healthy Emotional Development (Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health)
