5. Object Relating to Object Use (OR-OU)
Winnicott (1971) believed that infants first develop the capacity for object relating and then object use through a facilitating environment.
For example, the baby is presented with an object, such as the bottle, and that begins to shape how the baby will relate to external objects, through a process called object presenting. The mother creates an "illusion" of omnipotent control for the baby; when she sees the baby beginning to get hungry, she presents the bottle.
