Daycare: Why it hurts Babies and Toddlers by Yvette Whitaker, home.netcom.com, 1999 What Are A Babys Needs?
We're probably all familiar with the extreme example of the orphaned babies who died from a lack of touch and other related evidence.
Assuming that you accept your baby's need to be held, cuddled, touched (a LOT) - do you think he is going to be held enough if he lives most of his life in a room full of other babies making equally time-consuming demands on the few available adults? Do you really think anyone is just going to sit around and rock him and pet him while three other babies protest their dirty diapers and another one clamors for lunch? In a daycare situation, a baby's need to be kissed, tickled, admired, stroked, petted, and hugged a great deal will go unmet.

Daycare: Why it hurts Babies and Toddlers by Yvette Whitaker, home.netcom.com, 1999 In a daycare environment it's unlikely that a baby will find someone amongst the underpaid, overworked staff to love him like a mother. He's not going to get much attention unless he has an immediate physical need and that is likely to be met fairly mechanically. The person changing his diaper may be friendly and warm and even tickle his belly, but by no stretch of the imagination does the diaper-changer love that baby the way she loves her own child. The adults may be amused when the baby does something new (assuming they notice and recognize that it's new), but they are just not going to feel the pride and delight that any loving parent feels and can't help showing in response to their child's achievements. It's this pride and delight that the child needs to see reflecting at him in someone's eyes. It tells him what to think about himself.
What's really heartbreaking is that even if a daycare baby does get special attention from someone and manage to form an attachment, that person will probably disappear suddenly from his life. The staff turnover at daycare centers is phenomenally high.
