Leago | Attachment (secure/insecure), Awareness of Camera, Drive, Expectation, Feeding, Holding/impinging (environment), Mimicking, Self-regulation, Separation
Leago is at home at the end of the day. Mom is still at work and Leago’s great granny, Lilian, has been looking after him, which she does now daily. His granny, Florence, is also home from work. Leago is standing between great granny’s legs. He turns to her and stretches his hands towards her shirt, looking to suckle. Great granny says, pointing to the camera and aware of being filmed “No. This is not your breast.” Leago tries a few times and is then distracted by his granny who is sweeping outside. He goes to the gate to watch her. When she finishes and leaves he returns his attention to the toys inside and, rubbing his eyes, goes back to great granny trying to get to her breasts. Again she says no and after a few attempts she asks granny to bring Lee’s bottle. Leago drinks, holding the bottle himself, and has a to-and-fro with granny making the sounds of “mchaa” after sipping his milk to suggest enjoyment.
Both granny and great granny make several suggestions that Leago should show the filmmaker what he can do – climb on a bike, push a wheely-toy. Overall he does not respond to the specific suggestions.
