Your child’s experiences in the early years of life will shape his or her brain development and influence his/her future social, emotional and intellectual development.
Brain development will continue throughout life, but not to the same extent that it occurs in the first three years. Singing, reading and interacting with your baby assists in his/her development and ability to communicate, think and cope with their feelings.
Understanding the various developmental stages is important, as each milestone represents unique learnings. It’s also important to note that no two baby’s develop exactly the same, so try to relax and enjoy.

It’s also the time when he/she will attempt self feed (holding spoon / cup), be scared of strangers or objects, play hide and seek with people and objects, repeat sounds and gestures and even respond to their own name. Keeping up is the greatest challenge. More…
