The purpose of this article is to summarize key findings in cross-cultural research to guide infant mental health practice in pediatric settings. This overview highlights 3 main themes: the distribution of care-giving in families and communities, the persistent and paramount importance of physical health and survival, and the need to understand diverse practices of infant socialization. In each of these areas, simple guidance that can be implemented by diverse clinicians is offered.
