Abstract: The behavioral pattern during the first hour of life of 10 term neonate are reported by the study of minute by minute observation. The term newborn spent 65.5% of the first hour in the quiet alert state, 30.1% in the crying state and the rest 4.4% in the other states. The mean time spent in the dominant state of quiet alertness was 39.3 minutes. A sexual difference amongst the newborn was that the males spent 72.7% and the females spent 58.4% of the first hour in the quiet alert state. The predominant quiet alert state was analized for the time spent during the first 30 minutes and from 30 to 60 minutes. And it was found that 58.7% of the first 30 minutes and 76.4% of the second 30 minutes was spent in the quiet alert state. So it is suggested that during the time interval between 30 to 60 minutes after birth, the infants should be brought into physical contact with mothers for the first imprintation of the attachment-behavior in them, when they are in the state of maximum receptivity and the level of responses and reciprocation is at the optimum for promoting the attachment-behavior in the infants to be more deepening and long-lasting.
