What is the NBO system?

The Newborn Behavioural Observations (NBO) system is a relationship building tool that fosters a postive parent-infant interactive relationship. A supportive, nurturing relationship that is sensitive and responsive to the infant’s needs is a sign of parents' successful adaptation to parenting and optimises their infant's neurological and psychological development.

The NBO provides parents with individualized information about their infant's behaviour, so that they can appreciate their baby's unique competencies and vulnerabilities and thereby respond to their baby, in a way that best meets her or his developmental needs. The NBO can be flexibly administered with a view to promoting a positive bond between parent and child and between clinician and family. It is inherently interactive and family-centred, because parents are involved as partners in the NBO session throughout.
