Short years full of milestones

The first smile, the first word, the first fall: for parents, these experiences are burned into their memories. But in which phases exactly does the development of your child take place? We have summarised this for you in a clear and concise way.

From infant to toddler

From the birth of your baby to his 1st birthday

Eating, sleeping, crying: for a long time it was thought that in the first weeks and months of your baby's life there would be no more. But your baby's senses are already active. In addition to "basic care", your baby is also dependent on closeness and caressing. He wants to hear his parents' voice, smell their familiar scent and be carried around on his arm.
