Child development by months to year

Развитие ребенка по месяцам до года

The crisis of newborn is an intermediate stage between the intrauterine and extrauterine way of life of the child. The newborn is so helpless that if he does not appear to be an adult, he would have died a few hours after birth. So it turns out that at the time of delivery and right after it a person needs society.

According to psychoanalysts, birth is the first trauma the child is experiencing, and she is so strong that it has an impact on the whole subsequent life.

Is my child developing normally? What do you expect from your newly born baby? What to look for and what to tell your doctor? What problems can young parents face and how to solve them?
