(birth- 1 year)
Period of rapid development
Roughly 40% of the body's energy is devoted to growth
involuntary responses that occur automatically in the presence of certain stimuli that are critical for survival
newborns turn their head towards objects touching their cheeks
infants suck at things that touch their lips
an infant flings out the arms, fans the fingers and arches the back in response to sudden noise
baby's toes fan out when the outer edge of the sole of the foot is stroked
infant's brain weighs 25% of the adult's brain
In the months after birth, the brain grows rapidly, so does it's structure
infant learns things like motor skills, perception, reaching and grasping
Crying is the first form of communication
Basic cry, a systematic cry with a pattern of crying and silence. The basic cry starts with a cry coupled with a briefer silence, which is followed by a short high-pitched inspiratory whistle.
An anger cry is much like the basic cry; however, in this cry, more excess air is forced through the vocal cords, making it a louder, more abrupt cry.
The pain cry is one loud cry, followed by a period of breath holding.
