Abstract

Abstract Stability and change in mother-infant interaction behavior were assessed across early infancy. At 8 versus 4 months, the infants showed more smiling, vocalizing and motor-activity, and their mothers touched and moved their infants' limbs less often. Stability was noted only for infant distress-brow and mother's touching the infant. Although very few relationships were apparent between mother and infant behavior at 4 months, several maternal behaviors at 4 months were related to infant behaviors at 8 months, and several relationships were noted between maternal and infant behavior at 8 months.
