Infancy from birth to one year.
New-born babies can:
See faces as fuzzy shapes
Grasp an object that has touched the palm of their hand
Turn their head to look for a nipple or teat if their cheek is touched
Suck and swallow
Try to make stepping
Movements if they are held upright with their feet on a firm surface
Startle in response to a sudden sound or bright light
Stretch their arms suddenly and then bring them in if they feel they are falling
Recognise their mother’s voice and smell
Cry when they are hungry, in pain, need feeding, changing or just cuddling.
