Newborns - About Your Newborn

mother and baby

One of the most exciting things about being a parent is watching your child grow and develop. There are many steps a child will go through on the way to becoming an adult. By the time your child is one year old, he will recognize you, begin copying sounds and movements, and sit alone. Every child develops at a different rate and it is quite normal for a child to develop faster in one area than another.

For more detailed information specific to your own child's development, contact your health care provider or public health nurse.
