365 Amazing Days
There is an unmatched window of opportunity in the first 365 days to maximize your baby’s development. Healthy loving stimulation can help your infant to add 1 million or more neural connections each second! This builds strong brain circuits that will serve them for life.
Babies develop vision, hearing, language, and thinking in a predictable order, but each baby is also unique and progresses on their own timeline.
