Physical changes

In the lactation stage, the growth is rapid and successive, as the health follow-up at this stage is after a few weeks of birth to monitor height, weight, and head circumference. The purpose of this follow-up is to discover the child's development or not.

Body size

How exactly is rapid growth? The body size of the infant is usually twice the birth stage at the fourth month and three times the size in the first year. For example, the child's weight at birth is 3.25 kg, then 6.5 kg in the fourth month, and in the first year it is 9.75 kg. Then the physical growth begins to slow but remains fast. For the second year of birth, the infant's weight is 13 kg and is between 51-86 cm long. This means that the child in the second year of life is half of his height at puberty and one-fifth of his weight also at puberty.

Cerebral development

The infant's skull is disproportionately large because it retains the brain. The infant's brain weight is 25% of its weight at puberty.
Brain connections: the head circumference provides a difficult idea of ​​how the brain grows, which requires healthy follow-up. The distance between the head develops at a rate of 35% in the first year (33-46 cm) and the important changes of the brain are in communicative activity.

Senses and movement

As we learned in the second semester, that Piaget knew this age stage with what is known as the sensory stage because mental processes begin to develop through the development of the child's senses and motor skills. In the same vein, the development of the infant's brain depends on the experience of the senses and early activities.

The five senses

 The functions of the senses begin at birth. During the first year, infants use their senses to store and classify the experiences gained. Therefore, infants are a large part of the first year of their life looking around. While they look, they certainly listen, smell, taste, and touch everything in their 

surroundings. It is not surprising that children want to do everything without focus or discrimination. For example, you find them smiling at strangers or putting everything in their mouths. Hence the next question, why do children not choose what to do? The answer here is that the senses precede the 

child's sensory perception. The senses work when the sensory system receives excitement, such as the eye, when it receives light. Babies prefer a baby's senses when dealing with humans more than tools. Meaning that the child prefers to suck your finger over sucking a piece of fabric.

Perception is to analyze the information that reaches the brain through the senses. This analysis is in a part of the brain, drawing on previous experiences of its interpretation. The child at this stage does not realize what was received through the senses, for example, the child has no idea of ​​the letters 

when he sees them, and that the face of his mother is distinguished from the face of his father, and the smell of roses is different in its concept from the smell of garlic. Perceptive needs expertise, whether through direct experiences or messages from other people.
