Learning about the way that kids grow up is very interesting. Learning about the way a baby goes from his infancy to manhood will astound you. Growing up is a more complicated process than most people realize. Sure babies are cute, but they are incredibly complicated creatures. They each have individual needs and wants that parents need to take care of to make sure that development occurs the way it should. There is so much more to infancy development than most people realize. Being a parent is easier if you understand what is going on as your child grows from baby to small kid to teenager and onward.


Learning about the way that kids grow up is very interesting. Learning about the way a baby goes from his infancy to manhood will astound you. Growing up is a more complicated process than most people realize. Sure babies are cute, but they are incredibly complicated creatures. They each have individual needs and wants that parents need to take care of to make sure that development occurs the way it should. There is so much more to infancy development than most people realize. Being a parent is easier if you understand what is going on as your child grows from baby to small kid to teenager and onward.

An infant's body is made up of three hundred individual bones. After a person finishes growing up he or she only has two hundred and six bones. You do not lose any bones as you grow up; the reason an adult has fewer bones than a baby is because as the baby grows some of his bones fuse together. Some people think that this is one of the reasons that babies are so much more physically flexible than adults, because some of their bones are still able to move about independent of each other. If you look at a baby's flexibility and compare it to your own, this might make a lot of sense.

Some babies already have teeth when they are born-did you know that already? Still other babies are born with no hope of having their teeth come in until they hit their first birthdays.

A baby's first teeth are momentous and dreaded by many parents. Don't spend a lot of energy worrying about how your child's teething schedule compares to other children. There is no guarantee when it comes to childhood development even in a family with lots of kids-your baby will grow at the pace that nature has intended for him and him alone.

It's pretty much common belief that babies learn to smile long after they have entered the world. Smiling is often attributed to gas or the baby's having to go to the bathroom-at least until it reaches a few weeks in age. Nobody thought that smiling could be instinctual; instead it was widely regarded as learned behavior. Common thought said that learning how to express happiness was harder for babies than learning how to express displeasure (which is usually done through crying). Now it is apparent that this has always been wrong. Advances have been made in ultrasound technology and more parents are seeing images of their children smiling while they are still in utero. Many doctors are now able to print out pictures for families that show the new baby smiling before he or she is born. The belief now is that the birthing process is traumatic for the baby and that it takes a while for the baby to get over it and "learn" to smile again.
