Physically they will need a lot of care as they grow in the womb, they will need food through the fallopian tube, and this tube allows the child to take a part of whatever the mother is eating. In the womb as the foetus grows they start to move around and make more body movements such as kicking. This may show that the child is in good health when they move around in the womb a lot. Up to birth the child does not know how to function the body properly but
In the womb the foetus does not have any intellectual knowledge on what is happening and what they are doing, the brain is working at the lowest rate in any other stage. Your baby is learning and developing all the time
Talking or playing music is believed to comfort a baby in the womb, and help the baby understand the emotion of love. Hearing voices outside the womb will also help the baby decide the difference between happiness and sadness based on pitch and sound level of voices.
Mothers will see early smiles, laughs, coos, and giggles and be confused by those first screams of frustration. When the mother interacts, with their baby they will learn important social skills from them.
As the years go along they will start to grow more as they get fed more. They will from birth they will start to gain more strength within their body to do simple actions such as lift their chest and their heads. They are able to react to sudden noises, when a bright light is shone towards their eyes they will close it and others. A baby is born with a small amount of neck and head movements. As they get older throughout the months they learn how to function their body more and more, using their hands to play around more. As they get over the age of 1 they will start to walk and then later on run, physically their body gets stronger and bones get stronger too.
At this young age they are learning new things more and more. While under the age of 1 they will not remember a lot, but whatever they do learn they may repeat very often, meaning they may repeat clapping more and other actions similar. They may start to say simple words such as mama, dada and others of the sort, to get them to know that they are saying or doing something correctly give them some praises like clapping with a smile. After a while teaching them the alphabet will be good because this does not just help them with pronouncing their words but to start helping their memory.
Emotion is what an infant relies on to show how they feel in a certain time. An infant can cry to show that they are hungry, when they need their nappy changed or if they are in pain. They can stare and show a lot of interest on something when they are in fascination and other emotions. While they are growing they will start to show and learn how to express more emotions. As they show emotions they need to be understood and seen to. They do a lot of actions to show what they want emotionally. For example:
