I’m not sure what I think about this. This only makes sense if you’re one who believes that all anxiety and depression are congenital disorders. I do not believe this, although I do believe that there may be genetic factors or other congenital factors that may make the likelihood of developing anxiety or depression more likely.

I may be way off the mark on this one, but if I’m not mistaken, an infant’s cognitive abilities are incredibly limited and, for the most part, are dictated entirely by instinctual behaviors. It seems that it would be impossible to determine if an infant had depression or anxiety because it’s impossible to ask them.
