Mother - infant free play interaction: Berlin

A German middle class mother is playing with her three months old infant. It is a typical situation with the baby lying on his back and the mom bending over him. At the same time the baby is lying under a big toy. Face to face contact and object stimulation are the major channels of communication in this setting. In the background the grandmother is talking to an older sibling. At 3:15 the mom tells the experimenter that her baby is very big for his age and that other mothers often do not believe that he is only three months of age.
