Babies develop quickly in their first year, and you will be surprised by how much they learn. Your baby will become very aware of and interested in everything around them. It is lovely seeing how fascinated a baby is by small things, and how they copy you.
They might need you to help them. Have fun with them. If they become upset or frustrated, comfort them. The best thing you can do to help your baby thrive and to learn is to give them plenty of love and attention.
Babies are happy when you talk to them, give them lots of cuddles, and spend time playing with them.
They need you to provide opportunities for them to explore their world: this is how they learn.
