Babies Intelluctual Development

Babes development of learning over the first few years

Babies learn by the care they receive from there parents and care givers. Like for example if the baby is crying because their tummy hurts, when their mom picks them up and comforts them, it goes away.


-When you understand how an average child develops can help you provide learning experience that are age appropriate.


-A baby doesn't need attention of waking minute of the day but however you can help a baby thrive by just sitting there talking to them and playing with them.


-When a baby learns a new skill and shows you, show them that you care and respond with happiness. Your reaction will encourage the baby to keep trying new things.


-it is very important to show your love to your child. Showing your love will help with the baby's confidence and encouraging them to try more and learn more.


- talking as a big impact on the baby's learning development. By talking to infants you are helping them learn more about their environment. Current b research shows that the more caregivers and parents talk to the baby, it helps the child's brain develop faster.


To encourage learning, allow the child as much freedom of movement at home possible. In the first few months move the baby from room to room as much as you can to be with people and family. A baby who spends time in different rooms and spends time with different people learns more than a baby who spends time in a crib in a room alone. It is good to childproof the house as much as possible to insure safety for the child and to help monitor its activities.


It is important for the child to have a appropriate toy to play with. Like when a child has a spoon banging against a bowl or something, it is supposedly a "educational toy" with which she or he will learn what different sounds can be produced. For children play is work as well as pleasure. Playing helps strengthen their muscles, refine their motor skills, and learn about the world.


Birth to three months:

-A mobile hung safely above the crib is interesting for the baby to watch because of the sound and colors it makes.

Four to six months:

-The sense of touch is important in this period. Babies need to touch ,handle, bang, shake, suck and chew. So choose toys that are small enough to handle easily but to big to swallow.

Seven to nine months:

-They enjoy blocks, balls, large plastic beads that pop apart and roly-poly.

Ten to nine months:

-Babies of this age needs things to crawl after. Those who can walk like toys to push or pull.


Before learning to talk, a baby must learn to associate meanings with words. A child's first real words are usually understandable between the ages of eight and fifteen months.

One to six months:

-the child makes sounds such as coos, gurgles, and squeals. By the end of this period, the baby begins to experiment making different noises by making different shapes with their mouth.

Seven to twelve months:

- the baby starts to make more difficult noises. Babies may respond to their own names at these ages and add actions to words.

Thirteen to eighteen months:

-at around eighteen months, vocabulary begins to grow very quickly and children use words in combinations such as "no nap" and "want juice".

Eighteen months to two years:

- in this time children learn as many as twelve words a day. By two years most know a few thousand words and begin to use words to express their feelings.

Two to two-and-a-half years:

-Children begin to construct three- and four- word sentences.

Two-and-a-half to three year sentences.

Two-and-a-half to three years:

-children speak in longer sentences. They also understand that the order of words in a sentence can affect a meaning.

All this is too help parents understand a babies development of learning.
