Using the popular context of monthly milestones, this video follows eight babies over time to teach viewers what to expect from a baby in the first year of life. By showing each baby’s progress from month to month, educators can help parents, staff, and students gain a more comprehensive understanding of infant growth and development.

  • Volume 1: Birth to 6 Months
    Weaving together the milestones of the first six months with crucial parenting information, this volume follows four babies as they grow from sleepy newborns to babies who are sitting up and engaging with the world. Divided into two convenient 15-minute sections (Birth-3 Months and 3-6 Months).


  • Volume 2: 6 to 12 Months
    From a grabbing, babbling infant to the first words and steps of a budding toddler, this volume features four babies as they develop more complex abilities, especially when free to explore a safe environment. Divided into two, user-friendly, 15-minute sections (6-9 Months and 9-12 Months).
