Bonding between mother and baby is a crucial part of a child's development. But it can sometimes go awry for a variety of reasons. This is when attachment issues can arise. Unavoidable separation, maternal depression or illness, a mismatch between interaction styles and difficult, unsettled babies making parenting extra challenging can all impact and result in insecure attachment between mother and baby. Attachment issues can interfere with normal social development and a child's development of a secure sense of self.

The insecure attachment may manifest itself in different ways. Some children may be aloof and unresponsive. Others may constantly cling to their mother, be demanding and whiny and have difficult separating.
