Your Baby's First Year
Growth & Development
Babies in Nature
Like little white flower buds, twenty little teeth will eventually push their way through your baby's gums, making it easier to chew and digest food. The sign of a first baby tooth, sharp under the pad of your index finger, is a moment to celebrate - a milestone.
Sometimes the best parenting advice really does come from our grandmothers. Lullabies and little baby games have been passed down from generation to generation, and guess what? They really do promote language and social-emotional development!
The weaning process begins with the first bite of solid food, long before babies stop nursing. In fact, milk will continue to make up most of your infant’s diet for the entire first year. Most babies are ready for a no-pressure introduction to solid foods around the middle of the first year and not before.
