In Parenting Your Infant/Toddler by the Spirit, the newest and final book in Sally Hohnberger's parenting series, she outlines the real needs of infants. Babies are precious all the time, even if they don't act like it. Even these little ones entrusted to our care are teachable. It is in a child's infancy that we can build a foundation for obedience, trust in God, and right responses to life. During this impressionable time, the parent is the mind, will, and judgment for the infant. But keep in mind that our success is dependent on our own response to God's Spirit.
