See the World Through Your Baby's Eyes

2:55

Coming into the world is a brand new experience for a baby who has to learn to recognize the strange physical sensations he/she is experiencing for the first time.  A baby can feel uncomfortable with these new physical sensations, and sometimes it’s hard for their digestive systems to work easily.  Over the early weeks of life parents learn to respond to their baby, and the baby learns to trust that someone will be there to look after their needs.
