Enjoy...Struggle, Development and Growth of Baby
A new born baby........looks so cute. It is an amazing and wonderful experience to observe baby development stages.
I find it interesting to observe baby development day to day and am following some websites www.babycenter.com, www.webmd.com, www.netmums.com to have an understanding about what changes will be in the next month. As I read in the websites prior so I can observe very minor changes in the baby development.
The first thing babies do when they were born is to start crying but to my astonishment I came to know that they don't get tears until they complete 3 months. In the first month baby sleeps for 22 hours a day and cannot respond to others. From second month day time sleep gets reduced and they learn to move hands and legs by third month they learn to smile and start responding to others.
I disagree with the opinion of many people that babies lives are happy as they don't have any hindrances in their life and somebody will take care of them. By perceiving baby growth, life is a struggle from day one and even babies has their own challenges to achieve. A day's baby cannot do anything and even cannot recognise people around she starts learning everything on her own from smiling, recognising family members, moving hands and legs, then rolling to and fro, moving on her tummy, crawling..... Eveything they do on their own struggle.Every baby is different so each baby looks out for a way to roll over, move on tummy or crawling. Even eye hand coordination, picking up the objects from floor, thumb and point finger coordination all develops month on month. Observing those changes gives us an understading as how babies struggle for learning new things. We grown ups have some source to learn, but babies don't understand the human language so whatever they do it is on their own struggle.
I can see how many days a baby practices for learning a new act, say from moving on tummy to crawling. That says the will power and determination a baby has to learn new things. So learning new things and succeeding is not new for us and have that from the beginning of life.
Each baby is unique and has its own style in doing things. Motinoritng baby miles stones is exciting and leaves lasting memories years down the line and at the same time taking care of small babies is challenging though but it is memorable.
