About

Overview

It's amazing how quickly babies develop during their first days, weeks, and months. Baby Development: Everything You Need to Know takes parents through the first two years, focusing on what they can do to help maximize their baby's potential in a relaxed, fun way. The book is organized into six age ranges, starting with "the first two months" and ending with "19 months to 2 years" so that parents can easily follow and encourage their baby's progression from newborn to toddler. Each chapter begins with a visual overview of key milestones to guide parents through what to expect, from the first smile and learning to roll, to the first steps and words. The book is packed with games and activities to encourage development in the five key areas: Your social baby, Getting moving, Hand control, Communication skills and Brain power (cognitive ability). Short explanations (including the very latest research) on why these activities help to facilitate development feature throughout. All new material.
