Jane, Lucy, Thomas and Kate are a case study done by Robertson and Robertson (1967-1973). They were under three years old and were place in foster care as their mother was in hospital. The home tried to keep a similar routine as they had at home with their mother, their father would visit them regularly in order to keep links back home. The foster home took the children to see their mother in hospital and after visiting the children were more settled in the temporary house, however signs of distress were shown; Thomas rejected attempts to cuddle. Generally they slept well and on reunion with their mother they did not reject her.
Infants have sleep stages similar to adults called quiet and active sleep; these are immature versions of SWS and REM sleep. By the age of 6 months a circadian rhythm has become established and by the age of one year infants are usually sleeping mainly at night, with one or two naps a day. The periods of deep sleep lengthen and there is a reduction in the amount of active sleep. Itâ€™s not yet known if this sleep is active with dreams. One suggestion to babies sleep patterns is that they sleep to make their parents life easier so they can get on with chores and work which enhances survival.
Bowlby then went on to suggest that if the baby did not develop during this time then there would be catastrophic consequences. Yet another thing Bowlby suggested was that it was adaptive and innate.

This was also supported by the Strange Situation experiment.

Changes in Family Dynamics at the Birth of a Child As they affect each of the family: Mother, Father, Sibling, And the Extended Family of the New Parents. The decision to become a parent is a related to the desire to love and nurture as it is important considerations about what the addition of a child means in terms of life changes for both mother and father, (Rossi 2002). During the course of pregnancy, the mother begins to form a psychological relationship with her unborn child; she is just beginning to develop a sense of her as a parent to this baby,(Slade,2002).
