When you were born, you knew no one, not even your parents, and you certainly didn't know any right or wrong ways to interact with them. So, you just did what came naturally to you, as we all did, and developed into the fine specimen of a human that, no doubt, you are today. Shaffer and Emerson were interested in the concept of attachment in infants and suggested that a human infant's bonding period is much longer than that of animals. They also hypothesized that an infant's attachment with their parent grows stronger over time. In 1964, they set about an observational study in Glasgow to find out more. The researchers measured indicators of separation anxiety and stranger distress - how did the baby respond to being separated from their parent and how did they react to a newcomer on the scene? Sharon Emerson discovered that attachment types develop over time and correspond overwhelmingly with age. They proposed four stages of attachment. The first stage, usually lasting up to six weeks after birth, they termed the a-social stage. Newborn babies will typically form attachments with anything that breathes. Newborns don't tend to discriminate between humans and don't yet show preference for their parents but already show preference for humans over non-human stimuli, such as dolls. In the period between six weeks and six months, babies become more sociable as they develop through the indiscriminate stage. A three-month-old can tell people apart and so starts to form stronger attachments with familiar adults. But babies currently in the indiscriminate stage don't show a fear of strangers until they enter the phase of specific attachment, which tends to develop at the age of seven months.
