Infants: Child Development Index

Featured: Infants: Child Development Main Article
During your baby's first year of life, her vision and language abilities are developing rapidly. Stimulate her by talking, singing, and reading to her to help her understand language and sounds. Ensure her safety by putting her to sleep on her back, putting her in a car seat every time she rides in the car, cutting her food into small pieces so she doesn't choke, and getting her the appropriate immunizations.
