“During infancy, the baby and caretakers communicate through facial expressions and gestures and sounds.”

“All babies have a universal, inherited, built-in signaling system with which they both send and receive signals. This signaling is done especially through facial expressions and vocalizations. These signals are called feelings – such as joy, surprise, anger, and fear.”
