Transcript of Babies :)

Babies ~~~~Babies~~~ Even if you don't want to admit it, you were once a baby. Thousands of babies are born everyday just in the U.S. Babies are only considered babies for 18 months but they do a lot of growing in that time. The First 6 Months Months 6-12 Months 12-18 Newborns Within 2-3 months a baby can smile and make other sounds than crying.
The baby needs to develop a frustration tolerance at this time also. 1 2 3 At five months they
can probably sit if they are supported. They can also hold up their heads by now. 5 By month two babies develop motor skills. Motor skills are controlled movements, not reflexes. At the sixth to seventh month the baby can start growing baby teeth. In Conclusion... Babies are only babies for a year and a half but they do a lot of growing in that time. I told you about the three major phases for an infant brain which are 1-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 month. Everyone was once a baby so we should know how they develop. Work cited Alexander, Duane F. "Baby." World book Advanced. World book, 2012. Web 14 Dec. 2012. How they function Motor skills They depend largely on the development of the brain and nerves.
So, babies will be able to move their heads sooner than their arms and legs. Most newborn's actions are reflex actions. Reflex actions are completely automatic. Newborn infants can suck and swallow, move their arms and legs, and cry to make their needs known. When they are sleeping in their crib, they lay curled up like the position they were in in their mother's womb. The average weight for a baby at birth is 7 1/2lbs and the average length is 20in. A newborn baby's head makes up about a fourth of the total body length and is bigger around than their chest. An average adult's head makes up an eighth of their total height. Most Caucasian babies are born with grayish-blue eyes and pink skin. Their eyes may change color by the fifth or sixth month, but after that the color becomes permanent. African-American babies are usually born with brown eyes and relatively light brown skin that will darken within days. Babies start developing a personality at six months. They start to do things like wanting to hold their own bottle or not wanting to be held. In the sixth month the baby can pick up small objects between their thumb and palm. At eight months babies can recognize their. At month seven babies can sit upright by themselves.
At nine months they can stand but not walk. Play time
Potty training. . Babies learn how to do many things by imitating older people. Their ability to imitate improves after they have reached 12 months of age, probably because of a sudden advance in brain and nerve development. Walking At 12 or 13 months an infant can walk if they are helped. In month 15 a baby can walk on their own. A baby can usually run at 18 months In the 12th month babies start playing with blocks balls and other objects. They mainly just throw them or putting them in their mouths, but by the 18th month babies have learned that they can stack blocks and push them across the floor. Most babies can speak a few words like mom and dad, by the 12th month. In month 15, they start speaking more energetically but they still speak very few words. Within the 18th month the baby's vocabulary should have grown to 10-20 words. Babies can understand more words than they use. 1 year-olds (12 months) can understand names of a variety of objects and understands "no" and certain other commands. In the 15-18 months of infantry, babies enjoy listening to nursery rhymes and songs. They also enjoy hearing stories even though the story itself probably means nothing to them. This is when they start liking T.V and magazines. At 18 months a baby might be ready for potty training, which is when a baby stops using diapers.
A baby shouldn't be forced into potty training. Training can take up to 4 years to fully teach a child.
