Babies are little children. They are so little, that they have got special characteristics and needs:


  • FOOD: babies are born with no teeth so, at the beginning, they can't eat solid food. They have to drink their mother's milk or milk from a baby bottle.

  • MOVEMENT: newborn babies do not know how to walk. Then, when babies are about 6 months old, they begin to crawl with their hands. when babies are abouth 1 year old, they begin to walk.

  • COMMUNICATION: little babies do not talk, but they can make sounds. They normally start 'talking' when they are, more or less, one year old.

  • TOILET USE: babies don't know how to use a toilet, so they have to wear a nappy. When babies are two years old, they normally start using the toilet (or a potty).
