First stage: from 0 to 4 months. The reflections
It is the infant stage. The newborn spends most of the time asleep and feeding on breast or artificial milk, but day by day you will see how he raises his head, responds to sounds, looks at faces, follows the objectives with his eyes or sees in black and white .
The baby also has involuntary reflex movements, such as the suction of any object that is brought close to the mouth, the extension of the fingers when touching the sole of the foot, the closing and opening of the fingers of the hand or the extension of the arms - known as reflection Moro- in response to when they feel like they are falling on their back or to an unexpected noise.
Second stage: from 4 to 6 months. Babbling

Third stage: 6 to 8 months. Solid feed
The baby moves more and more and his diet begins to be more varied with the introduction of more food. What are you doing at this age? He is already beginning to understand words such as "yes" or "no", he rolls on the floor (be careful because he can fall off a bed), he reaches for objects, he grabs things with his thumb and forefinger, he brings objects to his mouth , sits unsupported, may wave good-bye, passes objects from one hand to the other, and separation anxiety begins if they do not see their parents. To eat it!

The baby will begin to crawl, beginning his independence to explore the world, but it is not his only conquest. He already says "papa" and "mama", combines syllables as if they were words (especially combinations of the syllables ma, pa, da and ba), perfects his crawl, stands up holding onto something, bumps objects together, claps , responds to his name, points to things to ask for them, drinks from a glass ... Have you seen how many changes?
Fifth stage: 10 to 12 months. Their first steps
There comes a fundamental moment for the baby and it is the beginning of his first steps and the pronunciation of his first words. Now begins a fascinating stage for both, in which your child will begin to develop his personality and communicate with others. How? Says one more word, besides "mom" and "dad", understands and reacts to instructions, imitates the actions of others, places things in a container, squats ...
