Your Child’s Development

Watching your child grow and develop is one of the most exciting parts of being a parent, especially in the early months when it seems every day brings a new skill.
Knowing what to expect from your child will help you in many ways. If you’re worried she is not reaching some milestones, you can mention it to your doctor.

Your Child’s Brain

Your baby’s brain is built over time: It starts during pregnancy, and continues through to early adulthood. And like a building, it needs a strong foundation.
The brain is made up of several different areas that control everything we do—from hearing and walking to problem-solving and how we feel. Each area has millions of brain cells, or neurons. These neurons communicate with each other by passing chemical messages over tiny spaces called synapses. As the messages are repeated over and over, more links are made and “neural pathways” are formed.

Screen time and young children

Children under 5 years old are exposed to more screens than ever before, including televisions, computers, gaming consoles, smartphones and tablets.
When thinking about how much time your child spends with screens, be sure to include all these different devices. Also include time spent viewing at home and in other places, like child care.

Promote Literacy From The Birth

Learning to read starts from birth. Newborn babies learn how to read signals all around them by listening to voices, watching faces and reading body language. Babies need to hear and use sounds, sound patterns and spoken language.

Play Time With Your Baby

As a parent, you are your baby’s first playmate. Play is a fun way for the two of you to bond and it encourages healthy child development.
Play is how children learn—about themselves, other people, and the world around them. It helps to build confidence, relationships, and basic skills.

Preventing Flat Heads in Babies

Why do some babies develop flat spots on their heads?

For the first 6 months, the safest place for your baby to sleep is on his back, in a crib in your room. Babies who sleep on their back are much less likely to die of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). SIDS is when an otherwise healthy baby under the age of 1 dies suddenly and unexpectedly and for no apparent reason while sleeping.
